School Reviews

  • Recommended December 17, 2007 - This is a very good school all the way around. The building has just gotten an addition. New science laboratories. It also have a good arts program, good band and show choir. The achedimic programs are amazing. This school has good teachers who care about their students. It is a good size in student population, large enough to where each student gets the classes he or she needs and is still not just a number, but small enough so that a student can get individual attention if needed. This school has a wonderful track, basketball, soccer, and volleyball program. It's track, volleyball and soccer team won states. It has a great robotics team. It's clubs are very strong; SADD, FCA CHRISTAIN TEENS, and others. I would recomend this school to anyone who wants an education. - 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.
