Difficult classes prepare students for college! Teachers at the high school level are supportive and want students to succeed, and will do almost anything to help their students understand concepts.

I have enjoyed being a part of this school system! There are many wonderful people, and I feel that the teachers are very aware and intuitive towards my needs.
It's a very good school in terms of academics, but in my opinion, the environment is a very toxic one. The current building was poorly built, but they are currently building a new school. Boy's sports are notoriously bad, but there are good teams for girls (track & field). Music and performing arts are incredibly well done, and although there are limits to the current layout, it is the shining star of the school.
