This is a complete joke of a school the teachers have no respect for the students and wonder why the students are bad this school is obsessive over the fact of discipline when they do it completely wrong suspending students for every little thing this school is a prison system with terrible food and horrible teaching system. MAY THE LORD BE WITH YOU GOING TO THIS SCHOOL.

This school is absolutely terrible. Teachers have no respect for students' well being, and treat them like inmates. As for acedemics, mulitiple teachers have "accidentally" taught the wrong subject and/or completely "forgot" to teach another.
