School Reviews

  • 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
