I had a good experience. Teachers focused on me. Parent involvement was great IF the student was involved in activities. If student not involved, well, then... like any other school the parent was not involved.

The school is horrible. Teachers are not well-enough educated, the students don't care, and violence is very prevalent. Fights are common. Gangs are present. The school regularly fails standardized tests. I would not reccomend this school to anyone.
