    The teachers have to be credited for doing a great job at this school. The leadership including the superintendent and pricipals have much to be desired. This school district is run by the good-old-boys administation. (you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours)I should know I use to be a teacher their till I resigned.(retired) I would like to say that the teachers do a good job admistering the academic programs. Parent involvement is good as well
