There's a fight once a month, the teachers aren't equipped to teach proficient students, and they aren't well equipped to teach slower students. Vaping is prevalent. The computer labs are older than most of the students there, and none of the teachers know how to use them. The lockers are almost always stuck or falling apart. It had no fun activities, most of them time the teacher asked us to buy them materials because "They weren't being paid enough to buy trash" It wasn't a fun experience.

Monsoon rain in the classrooms, but spending money on watering the lawn at the same time. Antique technology " computer ", teacher do security on their lunch break.

I have always dreaded when my children would get old enough to attend this school. It has been bad for many many years. Terrible teachers and staff. They are rude to the students and parents. This school is run like a juvenile detention center and not a learning institution. There is no inspiration only discipline at this school. Good luck if you have a child who needs motivation as this is a school they will surely fail. The teachers blame the parents instead of taking responsibility for their own students academic failures, albeit they are quick to take the credit if "I" have worked hard with my child and THEN he/she does well. What a joke. You are better off homeschooling your children if they need any sort of help as this school does not offer any. I will be giving 5 stars for parent involvement because that is what is needed for any student to pass this school.

Horrible for kids with learning disabilities.... total lack of being proactive on the part of at least 2/3 of the teachers I have dealt with. They wait until after the 100th day (to get funding for the student for the next year) to threaten to hold the students back. Basically forcing the parent to withdraw the disabled kids and put them into charter schools. Which has a net effect of making their Spring AIMS test results much higher.... go figure. Teachers that consistently allow students to not turn in work at all. No parent contact on individual students. Lying about emails that were never sent, failure to pick up a phone and call parents after weeks of not getting work. Blaming the kids for their own lack of engaging lesson plans and failure to manage their students. This school is horrible. Absolutely positively horrible for kids with learning disabilities. So much for no child left behind, and so much for special education. God Bless America.
