Turnaround or not, if you send your child here, you are a fool. I transferred mine out because of the constant fights, poor teachers and horrible administration. if i could give it 1 stars i would!!!!

perfect school for any young black youth to pursue an education. the security is fantastic but unnecessary for the kids mostly go straight to class. the teachers are intricate with their teachings and understanding of students. i would recommend this school to only those serious about receiving an education.
