Regardless of Carver's old reviews, I think this school is fantastic. This place a turned my whole life around and opened my eyes to where I was leading myself in life.

Please do not let your child go to this school , it's a disaster waiting to happen, no control in this school, 2005 my son gratuated at this so call school it was discusting , there is no diciplin at this school , but there are few teacher that care. This is not a military school -- it's a circus.
