    "I honestly think this school is great. Probably the best school around here. The teachers are nice and very helpful and are usually ready to help you. The kids there are also great. No one seems to have problems with one another. Everybody talks to each other. May not be the best, but is a great school."

    "This is one of the better performing schools in the area. Doesn't have much of a gang problem. As to the teachers, pretty much hit or miss. Theres some good ones but a lot you can tell they're just there to get paid. It has ALWAYS been difficult to talk to the principal. You would never see the principal outside of school functions- they are always secluded in their office. This was definitely not the case for the high school I went to where the principal would often greet students at the door and be able to talk to the students or parents' concerns. In general any person at the office is the worst! They have zero customer service skills and treat parents badly! Trust me there is a lot of angry parents at this school."

    "Zapata is to aggressive on the home work. They go over board on that. Not to mention the ditto teachers. All they do is make copies and give to the students. You wonder why the scores are so low. What a disgrace.."
