Excellent schools! They really go above and beyond to help their students. There are so many options for kids who struggle with school, they really want to make sure you graduate.

I enjoy my time there as a student in high school. The teachers were good and so was the way the taught us. The environment of the school was very friendly, very upbeat and you won't be alone if you don't have a friend in your class. However, some of the new safety and disciplining policies are a bit too strict and some teachers have different ways in learning so it might be a bit challenging if you always used to one style of learning
I liked the diversity in student population. I love the teaching style of teachers, flexibility to change courses & accessibility to resources . Councilors, Teachers & administration are very helpful
