  • Near the top of the pile of S.Teacher/Staff 06/20/2016
    The academics are a joke. Kids are constantly being passed regardless of how they do in the class or not. There is very little control and discipline of the students. The students can skip classes and roam the hallways constantly. The Admin is clueless and not liked by the staff. Large numbers of quality teachers have all left due to this current Admin. There are a few really good teachers, but they are frustrated with the whole system. Send your kids elsewhere.
