This is the worst school ever! There is a teacher at this high school that will do everything in her power to ruin student's success. One time my student was bullied at the school and the High School did nothing about it.. If you want your student to be ruined, this is the school for your child... I recommend that the school hire some good teachers that actually care about their students' success.

Awful school based on who you are not what you do. Teachers have grown up with most of the students parents, therefore giving special treatment to the kids. With the exception of a few teachers most are uncaring and unwilling to help the children if it is an inconvenience to them. Children are bullied an harassed daily while the principle pretends to deal with the problem while it gets swept under the rug. The women in the front office are rude and angry. When getting your child out of school for a family emergency I was prompted to give them a note. I had no idea a death in the family requited a doctors note. Overall awful school no preparation for college, staff is rude and education is sub par.
