Ghetto school, fight first week, bad teachers, behavior issues with other students and charging money for no reason.

Frank Black Middle School has an excellent principal and a dedicated and talented faculty. Discipline issues have dramatically improved in recent years. The campus has a lot of interesting features like a dance studio, and indoor swimming pool and a karate studio. More and more community members are getting involved to help with the school's transformation. It's a good school that is rapidly getting better and better.
