The school offer a few after school activities, mostly unnecessary. The staffs in this school aren''t helpful academically, neither will the Guidance counselor. The Guidance counselor''s advice isn''t skillful. Overall, the quality of the school along with the staffs are poor.

First of all, I want to say that the number of the graduation rate is 66%, not 86%. Second of all, I do not recommend anyone to go to this school. Why? Because, the quality of academics and teachers were poor. There is not a lot of extracurricular activities, and all the freshmens were screaming in their heads that they want to transfer out of this high school.
