Really good school! Teachers are easy to connect with, and very awesome! Good choice of classes, although I wish they had some more options that other schools in the county do. Facilities need to be improved, mainly the bathrooms and certain classrooms. This school definitely needs more funding towards renovations, sports teams, and theater!

A school is what you make it. You have to get involved, look past the teenage drama and focus on your goals! The administration is wonderful and the staff that helps you prepare for your future is knowledgeable and prepared to help. Get involved, go to games, join clubs and be ready for some fun while you figure out your path for the future.
I've had two children at this school. The school doesn't get a lot a credit around our county I think because it's a small school, it seems a lot of people in this county wantot go to the bigger schools. So they make sure they move to those districts. My experience is with the small schools the kids get more attention from the teachers. And sometimes it's hard to compete with the bigger schools because we don't have enough students for athletic or other programs to be as good as the bigger schools but we did just fine. So for those of you out there that think bigger is always better, you might should try the smaller ones. We have bigger hearts for our kids.
