This school is the best, although it may look run down it has nice teachers, and somewhat nice students as well as many activities to enroll/to do. Also, their breakfast and lunch are better than a lot of other high schools in SC.

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.
