Poor quality school! Visible roaches crawling about. Most teachers/staff lack professionalism. They're not mindful of voice tones, a lot of yelling going on and some teachers have gone as far as trying to intimidate students by getting in their face! Too many negative vibes and teacher cliques that's full of gossip... Extremely unprofessional and ghetto! A lot of creating problems rather than solving and lack of positive guidance for students. The school district has a lot of work to do concerning weeding out the foolishness going on here rather than let it become a negative impact on the quality services they seek to provide. Ridiculous!
