The academic progams don't add up to other schools such as the Shawnee Mission District. The bulding is very dirty inside, while the students are in there. They destroy things in their path. The female students most of them are pregnant and/or have a sexual transmitted diesase. Parents are shown no to be invloved by the way the children act. Their sports programs are the only thing the school has going for them.
