School Reviews

As a parent of 2 children who attended this school I have to say this is the worst school I have seen. My daughter dropped out two weeks before back to school night. Flying in from San Francisco for this, I sat in her councilors office to discuss poor grades. Her councilor had no clue why her grades we're low and never mentioned she dropped out. Story was constant with my son too. 5 years this school left my kids behind and instead of improving, the faculty tried sweeping it under the rug. We needed a school that was more than just talk. Disappointed.

Would I reccommend? : Hell Fucking No! I graduated in class of 02' and have never been so happy to be out of anywhere. The quality of academics is average to poor, as are the majority of the teachers (though there were a few exceptions of course who made it livable in some cases), the arts programs were as usual in AA county schools, lacking, so much so, that when the borad sent in interviewers to ask students confidentially how things were there I was told as one of the surveyed don't say anything bad. Well of course since the conditions here were more like a prison than a school, and this was illegal, I did, and once I did everyone else said their share as well :). Until latter on when I was there, there WERE NO DOORS on the only bathroom open during luch period and also other times of day (mens room) due to some moronic zero-tolerance policy on smoking (which I never did--way to punish us all guys--sexual harassment anyone?). That is until a friend of mine cherry-bombed them and things were finally repaired fully (never knew that till after graduation!). We even had a bit of race-rioting behind the scenes, and at one point a few years after I left they had to call in the national guard to make sure it didn't worsen due to a racially-charged murder in the area! Parent involvement: can't say it was lacking but as most of the parents here were just as ignorant and biggoted as their children, I can only hope it has dropped off, the administrative officials here are patented idiots as well--I've told people stories only to get looks of dis-belief. The last principle when I was there (Kisbert) was nearly fired but they couldn't get anyone to replace him so he wasn't. Don't put your kids here unless you want them to turn hateful, violent, and/or depressed! You've been warned, please heed it.
