There were two HQ teachers last year--art and English--both left (along with more than half of all teachers). The principal replaced the English department (100% left) with one inexperienced teacher and three fellows (still studying to become teachers). There is no consideration of the quality of education ...  Read more

I have to agree. Do not have your girls go here. My daughter attended this school since the 7th grade and boy does she regret it. As the years went by, the school got worse every year. They lost support from the communtiy and funding. As a result, the girls lost many privileges. During her senior ...  Read more

I also must agree with the comments left by the parents below this is not a good school for young ladies.

The teachers dont have any control over the girls that attended ...  Read more

I must agree with the parents below, this is the worst school for young girls. The school still has trailors, and their teachers are not up to par with their own studies. The girls in the school are too busy looking at boys from stevenson h.S. And some of the teachers allow them to converse between classes. ...  Read more

This school does not promote the integrity and sisterhood that was so highly praised in the schools brochure. The girls here are'nt really learning like they should. The majority of the whole 8th grade stepping up class had to go to summerschool in order to continue on to highschool. I blame a large ...  Read more
