  • Recommended November 15, 2010 - A. Academic Programs, average at best. Teachers only care about a pay check and a liberal agenda. B. Sports, Art, Music and Sports programs above average. World class music program. C. Academic and Athletic awards. No comment yet. D. Facilities. POOR, DUMPY, OLD!!! A can of paint goes a long way! The place just plain smells! E. Parent involvement falls on Def ears with the staff. If you are not below the poverty line, gay, or a minority, you will not get help here. Not stirring up trouble, just fact! - Posted by Teacher
