I am an alum from two years agao and the 2016-17 academic year was my first year and really a marker for the downfall of the school. I remember taking the first year of ap. Irt was a double period and extremely depressing. Aside from staff being overwhelmed from tyranical admin, we didn't even have proper equipment to do many labs. I am an hands on learner and had a 4.0 ending junior year but my senior easily drops to and 80 average. I am at a good college now but this school didn't bring much out of me. As a hands on learner we didn't even have a lot of opportunities fro practicals or field trips. There was always a safety concern. We had to release butane gas from a titration lab by walking in the government class across the hall in the middle of the period. School culture disgusting, my only enjoyment was a coach who also switch schools inside the building because of Salcedo's reign.

I liked my first 2 years there, afterward the staff changed and the school wasn't the same. The school initially was more family based. It seemed as though everyone knew each other, the teachers were kind and fair, and it seemed as though everyone actually cared that you succeed. However, when the principle left the school everything changed. The school became very standard. No-one seemed to care as much anymore and all the teachers systematically began leaving or getting let go.
As far as the teachers they will stop at nothing to make sure you understand and turn in your work. The staff members are mostly kind and will stop at nothing to make sure the students are always okay. Diversity is also excellent. One thing though we always had fights but because of the step they took to reduce/manage it, it has improved
