Horrible school! Bullies are rampant. Teachers tell you to ignore them, despite being physically assaulted daily. Types of assault include slaps to the back of the head and children getting their eyes poked by other students. School resource officer and assistant principal call kids' names such as dumbass and dismiss bullying complaints, as well as meting out undue punishments. Students cuss constantly and are generally thug wannabes. Stay far away.

I would not recommend this school to anyone. I had a teacher say something VERY inappropriate to my child and the administration did nothing. My child is in all GT classes and has to remain in this teacher's class throughout the year. The majority of the teachers have an I don't care attitude.
