So many kids here vape, beat each other up, cuss, and do even more bad things and the school almost does nothing about. Sure, it's great that they support the LGBTQ+ community, but this school is crazy. There's good and bad teachers, some teachers here are very strict and rude. I love all my new friends I have met here, but some people Removed, the school should really try harder.

I went here from 2014-2015, and it was the worst year of school in my life. The kids are mean, some of the teachers don't even care. Kids will pick on you for being poorer because at the time I lived in Ramona. The only good thing that come from this was the after school program and that was because of cooking. My best advice would be to go to a different school.

Unfortunately, the bullying and violence has not changed, but from the looks of the previous review in 2011, my guess is that it has gotten worse. Our experience has been horrible. Administration fails to follow through, follow up, there is no detention, there are no consequences. The children have learned this and know that they can do whatever they want and they will not even get a slap on the wrist. They are not even afraid of the school resource officer. That should tell you something. I have spent more time in the office with administrators than all my kids and years in school put together. Stay away from this school if there is even a remote possibility that you may need the school to handle a situation for your child.
