Love going to school here! All around I feel like we have the best of everything from Academics, to a great sports program, college readiness with the IB and AP programs. I'm in Student Government and that keeps me busy.They offer a great selection of after school activities for students to participate in.

This Academy was a very high point in my childhood. The atmosphere, community, educational quality and safety were impeccable. I applaud the administration there for keeping that facility in the condition it is in. We have won nationals in multiple sports, and for the music department we have sent multiple people to national-level competitions.
I have been very involved in the sports and music programs. I had a great experience with my coaches as well as my music teachers. My education has been well-rounded, and I feel ready to move in to college. The support of the music teachers in the general has paved my way in choosing to go on for percussion performance. I have had many musical experiences throughout high school that have prepared me to move into college-level studies.
