      One comment about Compton High

      The school have many strengths and many weaknesses. The school is beautiful and has history. Compton would rise once again with everyone help. What does the school district have to say about this? What are they doing to better prepare students who come to Compton High, who many fall behind in middle school or nine-grade?
