This school has no music classes any longer. The books are very old, and most teachers are coaches to where if a child is not particpating in a sport most of the teachers pay no mind to their academic talents. All this school cares about is sports! The bathrooms are unclean, rarely have soad, and the water pressure is terrible. There are not many electives all together.. This school doesn't support creativity on any manner.
