I like the atmosphere and the way that teachers interacted with students the most about this school, however I think that it could use a little bit more space to fit the large amount of students it houses. There simply is just no room to walk around!

It's too small of a school to hold nearly 1400 students. The graduation rate is probably around 70-80%. The school's biggest goal is to fix attendance. 26% have cut class or maybe that's the percentage of kids who have failed at least one class. Hallways reek of weed. My friend sold e-cigs out of his backpack and another, bars of xanax. The IB program was just implicated but AP classes were also taken away. Each school day cramps 9 periods into 7 hours. Class ratios are around 30:1. The number of clubs/options of electives is sad. For lunch there's cheeseburgers/pizza/wraps(with the option of lettuce/cheese)an assorted salad and a hot lunch(pasta/tacos/meatballs).It's 77% Latinx, 14% white, 8% black. On a good parent-teacher conference day I think you see about 100 parents. Sports include: soccer/basketball/football/volleyball/tennis/swimming/cheer. But the school is known for its marching band. Some kids bring tasers to school. Monthly reports coming to households about bed bugs.
For the most part decent teachers. Some are absolutely amazing; however, some are a bit off and not the best, but the councilors are understanding and help you out. The building needs repairs and its overcrowded, but the students are pretty nice and there are a lot of opportunities academic and extracurricular wise.
