The people and teachers are fantastic and extremely accepting. Although, there is a lack of extracuriculars and the school does'nt have an over flow of money, the outstanding people make up for it. The classes are small, 18 for the max and every student is very close. I would choose this school again because all the laughs, learning, and memories are priceless.

We have a fairly new principle and I think he's trying really hard, but he's not focusing on the issues that people are actually concerned about. The dress code is understandable, but the discipline policy is too easy on kids who get in trouble a lot. All staff and board member and every body involved in the school community are constantly going above and beyond.
The faculty are incredible, they're always willing to help with academic and non-academic things. They do an amazing job with the resources they can get, and they are always working to get better for us. However, the community isn't really involved with the school, and the school spirit is very low.
