I'm very worried about my teen attenting this school, she's coming from a private school, but unfortunatly we cant pay for it now that she is starting high school. I have heard quite a few negative comments about this school. I just went for an orientation in the auditorium and it looked so dirty and old, some of the chairs were broken the curtains were all ripped falling apart, and it was filthy. Anyway i talked to a few parents and students and all they said was really awful. One student mentioned to me that there was always students in the bathroom smoking, a lot of times it was weed, other times having sex. This student was beaten up in the bathroom. Also mentioned that teachers or deans dont do anything. Other students dont even want to use the bathrooms because their scared and so dirty, really really dirty they kept saying. I just hope my teen doesn't have any troubles while attending school, because she is a very nice well behaved.

There is no consistent program for students at risk. Many students fail because nobody helps them. A lot of self important adults are sitting around every day while dozens of students are sneaking off campus to do who knows what.
