School Reviews

  • Recommended February 14, 2015 - When students are being bullied, the bullies do not get in trouble. The 6 period day took away study halls and too many electives. Some teachers yell at students too much and cannot discipline them well. The portable classrooms are stupid because if it's raining or snowing outside, you can't put your books in a backpack, so your books get wet. The teachers do not enforce the dress code, and there is no senior class trip. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended February 02, 2015 - The administration cuts the budget too much, the 6 period day does not help students academically, and the dress code is not enforced often enough. Also, there is too much bullying, class sizes are too big, and a lot of the teachers are not good at discipline their students. - Posted by Student/Alumni
