Teachers are OK, but they transferred Principal Keating her from another school because he had so many complaints and some serious problems. There are alot of very bad rumors floating around about him, and none of them good. This seems to be the school where the district sticks all of their problem administrators and teachers.

Many parents are involved as well, working with the footbal team, and school spirit! The teachers tech very weel as well. With the exception of some minor problems..
