This school touts itself as a Magnet school, but a lot of the neighborhood schools in the area are much better. Their electives have been cut to the bone, leaving mainly the technology electives, so the school does not even have the normal electives that other schools have. The facilities are terribly old and the air conditioning seldom functions.
