It is actually the best school ever.

I believe the school struggles in the academics dept. Classrooms seems dull and uninviting. Parent conferences are rushed. Communication can be inconsistent depending on teacher. With such a diverse student body a diverse staff would be beneficial for students.

My daughter went to this school- 3 years there were no issues. 2016-2017 school year however, a new principle came. The teacher my son had was god awful. She bullied the kids and if you weren't THE perfect student and a teachers pet she punished the children for it. She was awful. Made the entire year horrible for both students and their parents. The principle was great 2013-2016! The 2016-2017 school year however, a new principle came that has a 'military outlook'. The SECOND WEEK OF SCHOOL I requested that my son be removed from the class he was in, because the teacher was not a good fit for him. The principle was rude, ignorant and disrespectful. Her tone was condescending and she told me that it's "too far in the school year to change classes". The second week of school. There were ongoing situations like this that made the year hard. I ended up having to go to the super attendant.
