The teachers are amazing, and the exposure is extraordinary. I love how the administration cares about their students as a whole and not just about their safety. Safe and interactive learning environment.

Even Though I left after seventh grade, I had a fun experience there. the teachers were very nice and helped me a lot with my English. I went from ESL(English as Second Language) to a regular English class in the middle of my seventh grade year.
Let me (I’ve graduated from this school already) break it down for you.

If you’re in the 6th grade, well though luck not trying to get bullied everyday by wannabe cool people.

Senior dues are such a scam, you aren’t even required to pay for it... Photo day is also another scam of a dishonest way for the school to make extra money.

Some of the Math teachers are pretty Incompetent, they are really in it for the paychecks to be honest, barely even learned anything actually useful.

A few English teachers are literal horrible, but some are really good.

Now about safety : Fights happen pretty often and it mostly happens on the Cafeteria.

Some teachers are a bit rude telling students “ Captain Obvious “, why don’t you grow up a bit teachers? Some of the AP’s don’t even discipline kids, I myself had to deal with some very rotten people and Ap doesn’t even care.

I do not reccomend coming to this school, I really hope this changes your minds.
