    Extracurriculars: No many clubs to offer. Sometime they just disappear after 1 meeting. Kids sign up just to list on college applications. There are no real activities.

    Teachers: Guidance staff is awful and disrespectful to parents. The staff often tells students they have no hope of college or a getting a good job. The staff seems bored and disconnected from their job.

    Overall Experience: Any funding from PTSA goes directly into sports programs. The band / orchestra gets no money, even when donated directly by parents of band or orchestra students. It is all one fund and is geared toward athletics.
