School Reviews

  • Recommended January 17, 2015 - The school is overall good as far as teaching goes anyways. Most teachers are excellent and teach the kids very thoroughly. The food is good too, so that's a plus. However, like every school it has its issues. Examples include too small of hallways and everyone trying to go through one door, which as teenagers, they will move extra slow. Another thing, men are not allowed to wear earrings which means yes they are still a couple of steps back socially. Also parking is not free and they have "no spots" available. When I say no spots I mean if you ask for a parking pass and they say no, they mean there is no more spots in student parking lot, but there is plenty in teacher and visitor and I mean PLENTY. The teachers are good but the deans and discipline people tend to over exert their power just because "they can", and even if you have a good point to bring up to them that makes logical sense they will say you're arguing because they don't want to be wrong. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended January 25, 2011 - This High school should not even be included in the word school. The Teachers don't know how to teach. There meathod of teaching is handing out worksheets and for students to teach themself. They have money for sports but not when it comes to buying books for education purpose. Parents try to communicate with teachers and but you get no response from teachers. This school doest not care of students sucess. - Posted by Parent
