So much is provided for the students in terms of technology, opportunities (extracurricular and part of the curriculum), academic support. While some students are unable to take advantage of these things, it is still a pretty good environment. The school's uniqueness stems from its technological forwardness (i.e. individual laptops for two of the three grade levels, and individual iPads for the third; new computers in the Library Media Center and Tech Lab Classroom) and the contributions of its PTO.

Extracurricular activities are open to all students with a GPA that meets a specific set of requirements. Many students participate in either a club, volunteer activity, or sport at some point throughout the year, and many enjoy these opportunities. Teachers encourage involvement and make allowances for students' academic work when the extracurricular activities take up too much time.
School is relatively new, but the bathrooms and other facilities could use updating. In terms of technology, the school is very "ahead of the game". College prep resources are not quite available on account of the young age of most students. Parent involvement is very high. Busing has had numerous problems in the past, but all issues are quickly and cleanly resolved.
