School Reviews

  • Recommended November 29, 2010 - Quality~4.5 of 5 Availability ~ 4.5 of 5 Awards~4.0 of 5 Faculty~3.0 of 5 Parental involvement~4.0 of 5 Basically the school has decent academic classes and what not BUT the rules are completely unreasonable, the staff only seems to care about football, and if your not involved with sports, you have little to no attention. The standards aren't held high. This school is mainly for football players and cheerleaders =/ - Posted by Student/Alumni
