This school has really impacted my life. Not only are the teachers so loving and amazing, the students never fail to make you feel a part of a family. Love this school. I came there in 2016 as a "sevie" and grew into a mature eight grader. Many memories will stay with me forever. Many challenges (its not that hard if you actually try) and educational opportunities. Just come here, it is a really good school with good humor. I never failed to smile whenever i got off the bus and into the cafeteria with the nicest lunch ladies. Say hi to Mr, Romero for me.

Excellent school! Students are challenged and supported. Teachers care about students and work hard to help them succeed!
The curriculum that they offer to students is challenging and I see in my child the enthusiasum and love for her classes. Teachers are doing a great job at showing students how exciting it can be to learn.
