This school literally turned my life around with the atmosphere. It's not like other schools, this school really allows you have be yourself and express your talent! And if you have a bullying problem, I highly suggest coming to here. There won't be any jocks, or punks to ruin your high school experience in any shape or form!

Poor academics and not enough emphasis placed on success. Rude students and high staff turn around and the building is in poor shape
