I am a currently a senior at this school. It's improving thanks to all the grants and awards our school received except for the fact that the money gave the assistant principals iPads which I saw one throwing it around like it was useless and the pointless flat screen tv in the cafeteria.

It's sad when your kid finishes with honors and has a 3.9 GPA ranked 12 in his class and guess what? He couldn't pass a college entrance test. But my kid sure did know the taks test- aced it everytime. Horrible school and the worst administrators I have ever delt with.

My son is now a junior. During the first 2 years there were many draconian rules, uneven enforcement and a general lack of common sense among staff, including a less than friendly environment for parents.

This school is terrible. Teachers have no idea what they are doing.
