Building is very outdated. Parts of the school look like they have-not been updated in many years. I have been there for a few concerts and sports events, and every time I am astonished by the state of the school.

The building is terrible, there are holes in the ceiling and cracks in the ceiling and walls they try to cover up but fail. The school just looks like a bad 80s movie school.
