Horrible school. Some teachers are racist. Some teachers will lie saying you said you want to bomb the school or whatever. Some teachers say they want to help then they take you (or your child) away from your work and yell at you saying do your work. Also, teachers are allowed to call students retards.

This is the worst school ever. Teacher don't know how to teach their students right. This school mostly only cares about the way you dress, they lack to care about student's education. They wouldn't even replace my Guitar! even though they replaced another student guitar for $800 not to long ago and mine was only $150! This is also maybe the most racist school in the county. I recommend that you do not send you child though this hell.
