This school was, in short, terribly run. It has many rules that don't make sense, such as making students wear nametags when there were only about 20 children in each grade. In 7th and 8th grade, you take Latin. When I explained to the director (principal) taking Latin was causing too much of a strain on my grades to be worth knowing a dead language I was placed in the Special Education room, which was a room full of children and computers that were often not supervised, leading to more facebook than face-to-book, if you catch my drift. altogether, the school's only redeeming quality was Mr. Miller, who teaches band, orchestra, math, science, and half of the latin class, and who happens to be the best teacher I have ever had, despite the crazy workload he had caused by understaffing. Overall, I can't recommend going here, but maybe conditions will improve?
