School Reviews

I've had two children attended this school. This school is a joke. Besides the art teacher and one math teacher that I know of, the teachers here are horrible. There were a few good ones that left due to the principal. They told my son their reason for leaving. Students here are horrible and teachers have a hard time controlling their classrooms. One of my children had a teacher tell their class to that they hate them. My son had a Pre AP teacher quit and steal the t-shirt money the students gave her for grade shirt. If you have a child who's an athlete, avoid this school completely. Coaching here is a joke.
