School Reviews

just a terrible school filled with bullies, druggies, and a horrible teaching staff
- Posted by Student/Alumni, 01/25/11
The school itself is good I guess but the people here are just terrible. It's hard to make friends here because people are so closed off in their own little cliques and there a lot of spoiled rich kids who think they're too good for everything. There's always some type of drama going on or some rumor being spread and it's not a good environment. I know people may say you find these types of thongs at every school but it's really bad here. I'm a senior this year and I cannot wait to graduate. I wouldn't send my kids to this school if my life depended on it.
