    "This school is the worst ! I'm a actual student going into my senior year & staff and teachers doesn't want you too progress in school, they let you do whatever you want no discipline corporates at all. The principal stays in her office 24/7 and never is there when you need even the guidance counselor. I hate this school. Please don't send your kids here! If you look at the graduation rate it is very very low so that should tell you alot. If I knew what I knew then about this school and had a earlier transfer I would've but it was already too late. School is infested with "ghetto kids" and bugs everywhere . There are fights almost every week and a lot of kids get bullied, the punishment is never harsh kids will return to school within five days or less. This school is very unfair. Board of Ed should really take a look into this school and and shut it down."

    "I am an actual student unsupervised by any teachers. so i can tell you the truth about the school. The good: You can do well if you work hard, supportive staff, after school tutoring provided, and community service help available. The bad: the school used to be a factory and is very old, a lot of "ghetto" kids, lack of athletic programs, and overly crowded staircases and hallways that may make you late. Summary: The school is pretty good but just make sure that you associate yourself with the right people and take work seriously."
