School Reviews

  • Recommended May 21, 2012 - This school was amazing! I attended this school for 4 years and the help and love I got from the staff was nothing but wonderful. I was In sports and I could not have asked for a better support system. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended September 01, 2010 - My Daughter graduated in 2010 and it was a great experience for her. The Music program is a great program if you feel your child is not fitting in. Try putting them in Music it does wonders for their self esteem and gives them a place to belong. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended August 09, 2010 - We've had a difficult year with administration. Teachers belittling the students and student bullying that has my child afraid to even step on campus. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.

Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
