Very great high school, awesome expereince there! Small close knit community with a lot of involvement among the teachers with the students. I had a great experience there and they also were very helpful with guidance for getting into college

Teachers are excellent. They participate in meaningful professional development. Contact with teachers and other staff is respected. Principals and other administrators are visible to parents and students.
More interaction between staff and students is needed during unstructured social time (ex:lunch) especially in middle school to help student negotiate challenging social pressures. More effort should be placed on presenting post-secondary options, beginning in late elementary/middle school.
No diversity, and the student body is ignorant and segregated. The school is shiny and brand new, but it's forbidden to put anything on the walls, so it looks like a hospital. ALL students, including seniors, are treated like children. We have little freedom. However, you could argue that this approach leads to a "safer" school.
