Someone at this school is cooking the books. The school is failing on every other site. The attendance staff and office staff are incompetent to say the least and a lot of the teachers are incredibly rude and condescending. The principal loves to hear herself talk and go on and on about how she personally improved the school, but when you look at the school, you don't see any improvements. The only way its grade went up was if someone fudged numbers and scores. If I could, I'd give the school negative stars.
