    Overall Experience: I've been in this school system since Pre-K. I strongly dislike many things about this school, but overall I am thankful for the opportunity to have been an environment that I did not have to be afraid. I have never been intimated or scared. In my four years of being there, there has only been one fight and its a very calm enviroment....However: I have experienced so much racism from teachers, students, parents, and administration. I would never recommend this school to a student of a minority group.

    Administration & Policies: i think that fighting during school affected students and the staff. Administration handled all issues without discretion to any one person

    Teachers: my teachers followed their guidelines and were willing to give extra credit only if you showed the initiative of trying the first time
