Its a good school with a lot of talented people but those people do not like to put forth the effort. There is a lot of culture in our school and schools like ours are schools that are devoid of certain opportunities because we don't have the funding or because some of the teachers just like the students don't put the effort forth. We also have to deal with a lot of stereotypes being a mostly African American school, they expect us to be ignorant, disrespectful students with pants to our knees but there is a lot of talent and future opportunities

I loved this school with a passion, I have graduated in 2019 and I still keep in contact with the teachers I've had since my ninth grade year. At some times I really use to have no motivation to attend school at all but all the teachers would sit down and talk to me and tell me about how they know I will be successful.
It’s alright. We don’t really do much. It’s more focused on passing the test and passing the class rather than actually learning the material.
