The staff is nice, they are the best.

I've worked here for 2 years and let my child go here. It was by far the worst school I've ever worked at. It offered very few academic programs and few electives. by my second year teaching they had gotten iPads, which constantly crashed and the school had no tech support, so my child constantly turned in late work. A lot of other teachers were simply there to get a paycheck and go home. Also this school has a weird bullying problem, as about half of my students reported that they were bullied, and that administration told them to "tell the bully to stop" and nothing more.

This school is horrible. The administration is absolutely awful. I have had nothing but problems with this school from day one and I have 3 children there and 2 more on the way which we are now looking at KQA as an alternative to this school. The only saving grace is that the principal Mr. Long will be gone at the end of the year. This school is full of outright discrimination and poor policies. My child has repeatedly come home from school after being beaten up and harassed and the school refuses to do anything about it. The administration will fill you with nothing but lies and double speak when trying to support their decisions to do nothing about the problems they have. I urge you to validate my statements and contact the ACLU as they have been filled with complaints and concerns for the past few years as it pertains to this school.

For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
