This school cannot handle students coming from a block schedule. Your child will lose credits. The School Board does not listen to parents. In comparison to other High Schools nearby which are on block schedule and that allow parents to be involved in discipline, I would avould this school and its administration like a nasty plague. They are behind the times.
