This school is terrible, the teachers are odd, but there are a few exceptions.

This is a newer school that is not too new to not have any traditions. The teachers are great except for 2 or 3. Many of these teachers have their masters or higher in level of education. This is an A+ school as of this year. This school is among the elite in public schools. Sports are on a high level for all of you jocks and female jocks. Football is has always been a top program in the state since its first year, and Basketball always has a great team, able to contest each year for a state championship. For the female jocks out there, Softball is number one in the state two years running, with two state championships, and competing for a third. Overall I would give this school an A. Sweeps are dumb(.)

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
