If you are looking for the absolute best education and enviornment for your child, I would not recommend this school. It has bad rolemodels throughtout students and adults. The school is poor. The lunch provided is obviously, like all school lunch, not good. It is a good school, but not a school that you should be satasfied with. Always try to look for a better school. The school is split between Arms (boys) and Excel (girls). This is not good because alot of little girls that come out of that school change their sexual orientation. This is a good, but not great school. Coming from experiance. The school has basketball, cheerleading, football, etc., but scholars must try out for them.
