This school is very bad. No adult on campus gives 2 Removed about the students. There have been many times where they could have prevented a gang fight but choose to watch instead.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A SCHOOL WERE THE STAFF AND TEACHERS TALK TO YOU LIKE YOUR THE STUDENT NOT MINORTY VERY UNPROFFESIONAL STAFF. YOU WONDER WHAT MAKES KIDS SNAP?? STAFF MOUTH, YOU SHOULD BE ENCOURRAGING STUDENTS BUT YET YOU TEAR THEM DOWN. YES MAM NO SIR WHY? WHEN YOU DON'T RESPECT THEM.
I would never recommend this school. There are more fights and lock downs than there is actually teaching. The school is very sexist when it comes to dress code and the food closely resembles garbage. I have had bugs in it, expired, and paper. The staff could care less and text more than they actually teach. The ladies that are supposed to greet you when you first show up to the school are rude and look at themselves more than they care. There is constant bullying that never stops. Never EVER go to this school
