I went there and they have the best teachers ever. I loved all of my teachers and wouldn't trade them for the world.

Absolutely the worst school. Drugs are rampant, even to the point of bringing them to school. Security is niland the supervisory staff is totally apathetic.

Students in the district are not prepared to enter college and the rigorous demands it places on students. The school and district ...  Read more

I feel that there is always room for improvement. I feel that some of the individual principals seem to be more involved with the kids with no support from Principal Gregg. I have also found him to be very unapprochable to parents and not very intrested in any contributions on any scale for improvements. ...  Read more
