I am not happy with this school, 6 of our 7 children have attended there 3 already drop out to get a GED and the others are asking to be transfer to another school, they have a lot of empathy for certain racial group and the rest are very well ignored and push to the side.

I also dislike this school. Although my child currently attends the school, I will strongly consider a transfer. I'm afraid my child won't get the adequate education he needs for college.

Not happy at all with this school. I have two children who have attended this school. I have found thier academics to be lacking. They dont push for excellence unless the child is in honors or AP classes. There dress code is non existant or not enforced. The music program lacks the leadership to attract ...  Read more
