School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - Academic programs are generally weak. Music, art and drama are terrible, sports are king, particularly football. The facilitiy is old, unattractive, and very poorly maintained. Violence is on the increase. Parents only complain about what children do not get, they are never positive forces. In spite of many gifts of equipment to the school, they are not making any progress in their ability to truly educate, and produce well rounded students. - Posted by Student/Alumni
