I've been at this school 6-8 and it's terrible the teachers don't teach as good as they should they scream for no reason they serve nasty food nobody deals with fights or bullying so if your a parent or anyone don't bring your child to this school it's horrible

Bullying of students and staff is not enforced appropriatly. Teachers are afraid to disciline unruly students because "the office staff just sends them back to class". Witnessed this first hand! Poor level of parental involvement and music program is next to non- exsistent.

Low parent involvement, very few amount of parental involvement unless in specific teams for sports or in musical extra cirriculars. Musical instruments dented and poor quality, art supplies are poor. Overly used amount of awards throughout the school year.
