The school might of improved since 1996, but when I went there it was a horrible school. But at that time you couldnt go to another school you had to stay with in your district. If I couldve I wouldve transfer. If the school has not change I would never ever recommend this school to anyone. They were yrs behind in academic programs. The Facilities were falling apart, ei holes in the ceilings.
