    "It's horrible. The students are all bad, some teachers don't even teach, and don't even get me started on the food. The school logic is confusing, the school is way too big, and lots of things are inconveniently placed. Plain and simple, don't go to this school!"

    "Teacher quality: 2/5 School has declined over the past decade. Ranges from subpar to great teachers in the building. It is like a box of chocolates. Principal/Administration: 1/5 Administration created defensive barriers and there is no dialogue or trust between staff and administration. Us vs Them mentality. Administration needs to show leadership. Unfortunately incompetence is rampant amongst some staff and most of administration. Parent Involvement: 2/5 Depends on the level of the child. Ex. 9/AP level parents during open house = no seats available. 5 and 7 level parents = 3-5 parents show up. Parent involvement is key in helping students succeed. This is sad considering it is coming form a teacher who has been here for a decade now."

    "Quality of education at this school seems to have declined during the last four years of my child's attendance, as have administration and overall teacher and parent involvement. Sadly, the town's politics may have a part to play in conditions at the school as well since funds are cut every year so programs and teachers are lost."
