There are several talented and dedicated teachers at this school. The administration is pretty pack luster. They seem to just be herding children through an awkward developmental phase rather than making an effort for each child to develop and grow. Over-all, a good learning environment created by committed teachers.

Although this school looks to have all of the educational amenities a parent would want for his or her child, nothing can substitute the feelings of feeling safe while at school. The bullying at this school was horrible. My child was constantly teased for his non-athletic abilities and offered drinks of "kool-aid" as a racial joke. Even after reporting it, the bullying didn't stop. In general, the unacceptance of minorities seems to be an issue at all three levels of school in this area. Of course, we met several great teachers and some nice families, however more should be done to educate the students in diversity as a whole, not just handicap students.

I attended middle school here a few years ago and it was horrible. I was countlessly bullied by the snobby, rich, white kids and administration never did anything about it. And it wasn't just me, bullying is a major problem at this school and the principals and counselors just ignore it. The teachers don't value their students and they are all lazy. The support staff is rude. It's hard to make friends and be accepted. Horrible, horrible school.

I attended three complete school years at this school. My first year, there were very little cases of any major misbehaviors or punishments. As I went on for 8th grade and 9th grade, I noticed the school was starting to lose a bit of it's grip respect-wise. As a student, I felt that the atmosphere at this school was hard to adapt to. I never truly adapted to it. I felt uncomfortable at this school and felt that it was hard to make quality friends. As a strong student, I have to compliment the teachers and staff - most are friendly and compassionate. If students need help, they are encouraged to ask for it and come in for help. I'm lucky to have had the best teachers, but there are some teachers that I've heard are below adequate. Overall, good academics/sports.
