Not All parents are as involved with the schools as they need to be. If a child's parent isn't involved he child is more likely to loose rack of there grade and eventually fail the class. Children need a Spark of motivation althat can sometimes be given by the parents push for better grades.

It was just an ok high school. When i was attending there was emphasis on football and there players. They got first pick for classes and everything else. I was a part of the performing arts department. Stage production program was incredible. There was also a strong drama and music program also. ISo strong in fact that i would attend this school all over again.
