I went there 2 years ago. a. there are NO academic programs, unless you are like, brilliant. that is where all the adult attition goes. b. there is NO availability for extracurricular activites. AT ALL. c. You have to be really great at everything to get any type of award. i was a b+ student and i NEVER got recignized for anything.if they had pushed me (or even paid attition to me) i know i could have been an A student. d. the teacher to student ratio is crazy. there should be far less students per classroom. the bathrooms are NASTY (they always smelled bad). the janator was pretty cool though (kevin, he was awesome =]]) e. no parents care about that school either. nobody even shows up for parent teacher night. it was a good social school, though if you got in the right clique.sorry if it was complany. the school was pretty okay. the adults just need to be more involved with EVERYBODY.
