      i am a student at this high school this is a great school and you can receive a quality education here it is very packed but if you want to learn you will and if you dont then you wont.A stregths is that u can meet wonderful and interesting people who have different views of live and the class difference makes it humbling.A weakness is it is overcrowed they also dont recycle But a great school
      PS Love to all those who lost someone in the Attacks on The world trade center pentagon and flight 93 and the firefighters WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER
