Being a person that has gone to this school i can honestly say that it isn't the best high school and yes the curriculum is outdated but so are the books.

I beleive there is not enough parent involvement. Students are not getting all the support they need. The schoolis not a bad school the students just need more family support. I beleive test scores would go up tremendously if parents would get more involved in their children's life, as far as academics.
