The academic programs were crappy. Very often you find yourself sitting there doing nothing. The only extracurriculars they have are baseball, football, basketball, and band. The facilities are really worn down and crappy, bathrooms still have asbestos in them. The teachers don't really care about you and wont help you make up work if you miss a few days. Sometimes they will even lie and say you didn't miss anything and at the end of the 6 weeks you have an F because of it.There isn't really any parent involvement.
