Diversity?! That is a joke. This school is mostly white, with few blacks, Hispanics and Asians. The diversity that does exist is the result of cross racial adoptions. The longer you spend in this districts system, the more likely you are to fail in the future. Academics are covered for athletes as this school struggles to recognized state wide as a contender. Drugs, alcohol, and mental health issues plague many of the students. If you are looking for a safe environment, look elsewhere.

This is a great school district! There are many different courses that are offered for everybody. Some classes are even college transferable. There are also many great teachers and many activities and groups that meet after school so you will never be bored!
With their amazing teachings, I was able to become the person I am today, I've had an amazing personal connection with the faculty and staff throughout my four years at this school.
