Very helpful staff! The teachers, staff and counselors care a lot about the students well-being. College readiness and academical success is widely encouraged. Counselors and teachers work very hard to inform the students of academical opportunities. The environment is very safe. The school community is very understanding and helpful.

this school deserves to be out there. Since it is a small school, every one is connected, the school faculties would help you in any way possible, they would try and give you the best options possible for you in the future and whatever things you need that you are struggling with. Overall, the teachers would push you to do better and the school provides financial classes which helps many kids be ready and know how to be financially stable. Most kids don’t want to have a future in financial so the school helps kids find there best fit or silver lining and help them reach there dream college. It also provides kids internships and describe the things they need for college in the easiest way possible. Because it is a small school, it lacks clubs and activities but it would always try to provide things for the kids with the stuff they have provided. School is very safe and the faculty can control any situation they have going on and are very honest to the kids.
Honestly it’s an average school unfortunately doesn’t provide much support for average students only for students above excellence. Fails in providing mental health support by the guidance counselors, as well as motivating others to do better. Since it is a uniform school days when there is a dress down (no uniform) they charge from 5-10 dollars so financially they’re constantly asking for money. I think the leading administrators should improve their connection with the students not what’s best in just making the school look good .
