Even though I never went to this school, my former classmate's sister's friend went to this school, and she hated it. She was spectating a fight at this school. When she tried to stop it, she got pushed around instead. Additionally, when she reported this fight to the school, the school did NOTHING about it! Nothing! So if you can, don't go or even apply to this school, and I mean it!

The school's teachers and faculty are great! Students are offered a wide variety of extracurriculars and the teaching standards are great. They have been graduating more and more of their students into the highly desired local High Schools and the city's specialized schools. This school has been on its way up over the past decade, take a look at the kids' test scores. Very very pleased with 119!

If you have a chance to send your child somewhere.. do so! They will never learn anything because their classmates are loud, rude, unattentive, uneducated (and will remain so in life). It is disappointing to see that the principal and her staff have no control over these children.
