The school doesn't communicate effectively both the school website & the infinite campus lacks update info. & school does a very poor job of promoting it so parents aren't aware. Focus on Basic Fundamentals: HOW TO: take notes, study, prepare for a test, how to stay healthy, Character building, Sleep importance, responsibility & what is expected of them ect. No parent involvement, overcrowded class rooms. Lack of: Steam, art, music, teacher education innovation, assistance for the student or the parent & they need to identify students who need language training. specially for the latino community that makes up 41% of it's students. Emphasis on: reading list, character building. Go back to basics a break down of sentences or incorporate Syntax.

It is fine. Not much better than other schools, but still decent enough for children to be enrolled in.
They have no motivation and assign too much work for one day's worth .Plus this school doesn't offer the same opportuni as normal middles schools.
