    "Our experience with this school was atrocious. The principal was completely out of touch with the myriad of student and teacher issues and seemingly unable to address them when made aware. We pulled out child out. It is essentially a marketing ploy. Based o the ratings history, maybe it was good a few years ago and has declined. Stay clear . . ."

    "Keep in mind that this is coming from a student. This is the worst school that I have ever been in. The school itself made up SO many lies that it is literally hysterical to think about. Here are some examples: They give all the students computers; almost 0% of what goes on on those is school related. They act like the school is small; when the school isn't that much smaller than average, but it is PACKED so tightly into a small area that it seems massive to students. The teachers are basically blind, and have no sense about what is going on right in front of their eyes. Students here do ANYTHING for attention, even if it involves HEAVY violence and bullying. The system that this school runs is, in one word, HORRIBLE. I can go on for days about this school, but I'm going to save time and just say this: NEVER BRING YOUR KIDS HERE."

    "If you don't want your child getting lost in,' the crowd', or want your child to be able to thrive in a smaller school setting, have hands on projects and teachers who make school exciting, and kept safe from bullying, then this is NOT the school for you. It has a serious problem in all of the above issues. The school has too many students, with behavioral and learning problems. The result is an off balance peer dominated school structure, that is nothing at all like what the children and parents are led to believe it is. Sad, it seemed so positive. Many parents agree with this. Like the review above had written, It was a lost year, no positive outcome. The principal is a strong force at the school. He is kind and just. Things that were going on were underlying not easily noticed visibly. Sometimes, there is a larger than normal offset of students and groups who are in need of diciplinary attention in certain years, and this year was one of them. It was too many to deal with at one time I think...Hopefully this can be rectified before the schools reputation is further tarnished."

    "We enrolled our daughter in this school based on the good word-of-mouth that circulates about it locally. Now that we're at the end of her 7th grade year, we're wondering why we bothered. Issues abound with the teaching staff, ranging from outright incompetence (we've had notes sent home littered with basic spelling errors and grammar mistakes) to an inability to control their students. Essential knowledge (US and California history, classics of literature, basic English) is eschewed in favor of lengthy and specific units on certain ethnic groups, drawing manga and anime characters in "fine arts" and playing video games. Parents are expected to drop what they're doing at a moment's notice to attend mandatory functions tied to their child's grades and pay ridiculous fees for activities and trips. Our e-mail boxes are incessantly flooded with rudely-written, demanding newsletters throughout the day, every single day. A system allowing parents to monitor their child's progress online was promised at the start of the year and never delivered. DO NOT BOTHER WITH THEIR ENROLLMENT "RAFFLE". It is not worth the headache! There are better schools in the district."

    "There are teachers at this school who can't handle us well. I don't want to name names, but he really needs to grow up and be a man. Most teachers are too laid back and don't teach us anything. Our standards are going down. We haven't even learned about the Civil War yet! Why aren't we learning anything we need to?! I don't like the school at all. I don't like really anything about it."
