My experience has been great! I am a very involved student. I am in lots of clubs and I am a leader in most of them. My school is small but very great. We have access to computers during the school year which we are able to take home. Our teachers are personal and make sure that we are learning.

The teachers are always ready to help. However, the school does not offer AP or advanced classes to high achieving students. The clubs are pretty involved and are easy to be a part of.
Teachers here really care about the students, as well as the rest of the faculty. The facilities are very good, and the small school environment is really good for growth in studies for students of all ages
