great school, great teachers, not overcrowded, so many upgrades since fire REALLY GOOD SCHOOL
This school has some very serious problems. The school is filthy. if you are a self starter, an exceptional athelete or student you will probably do well at this school. If you are a student who does not fall into these catagories you will probably be left behind. This is the case with my child and many like him. Children are not able to get any extra help right now due to a contract dispute between teachers and the district. Guidance counselors do not seem to guide or councel students in their education choices.(my child can't even get an appointment.) I see no school pride in students or facilty. vandelism, bad language, bullying, no inforced dressed code and children not having their educational needs met. These are just a few problems needing to be addressed. If seems as though children do not come first in this school district.
