I graduated in 01. And the bad reviews I've read so far are pretty much true. Too many bad students, particularly the one's in gangs. On my first day of school I've seen two fights. The teacher's. Were OK. Its just how the school is run, which is poorly.

As an alumni of this school. I can say I had a few good teachers, but this school doesn't prepar you for college/University or life. I wouldn't send my children here.
