The school is like a prison. My kids were on the honor roll and never got in trouble, however, they hated school and dreaded going each day. No talking, no hugging, you must walk in a line at all time in the hall, no fun . . . The principal has run off most of the good teachers. Parents are not welcome in the school. Not my opinion. Fact. Do your own reseach and find out. Very sad because it was once a great school. Students will get a decent education but they will not get it in a good environment.
