School Reviews

  • Recommended January 25, 2011 - just a terrible school filled with bullies, druggies, and a horrible teaching staff - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended September 16, 2010 - The school itself is good I guess but the people here are just terrible. It's hard to make friends here because people are so closed off in their own little cliques and there a lot of spoiled rich kids who think they're too good for everything. There's always some type of drama going on or some rumor being spread and it's not a good environment. I know people may say you find these types of thongs at every school but it's really bad here. I'm a senior this year and I cannot wait to graduate. I wouldn't send my kids to this school if my life depended on it. - Posted by Student/Alumni

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.
