The academics are very weak because they have a lot of very new teachers, who don't know what they're doing, or very old teachers, who are just waiting it out until they retire. They have an excellent Band & Chorus staff who put on concerts twice a year. The new drama teacher this year is outstanding! He is inspiring to all of the students and really works hard with them so they put on an amazing performance. This school has not even met the State's minimum score requirements on either the Math or Reading tests for the last several years. There is absolutely zero parent involvement. Because of that the teachers act like drill sargents by yelling and ordering students around. If your child has a problem, don't bother going to the teacher or principal, they always blame the child. Even if you pester the principal often enough to finally get her involved, she takes months to address the problem. My child was a happy, hardworking student who is above grade level in Math & Reading. After less than one year at this school she hates going to school and hates her teachers.
