i Must say it wasn't easy starting a new school in a new neighborhood. But the passion of the teachers the care of the principle helped me get my diploma. The push the positive feedback and encouragement meant a lot. i would not have graduated if the staff and my mother would not have pushed me. It's living in the projects the constant drug dealers alcoholics and young parents that made me realize it's all in the people who care for you. And that's what They did.

The teachers are okay, and some actually make learning interesting.
I have learn so much throughout my almost 4yrs there. The academic classes are great. What has been the best was all the different activities I became a part of, those included JROTC, EMS, EMT, Track n Field, Representative of our student Government. On top of all that i was able to maintain my 4-0 GPA for the 4yrs. I've had so much fun in this school with all my extracuricular activies and class trips, it has been a great learning experience and very rewarding. If I had to choose again i would.
