Excellent funding. Very tumultous era of leadership. Excellent level of parent and community involvement. Disappointed that no after school activity buses are offered for students, which limits students who can participate to those who have non-working parents or nannies.

I received a great education that prepared me for college and I really enjoyed my time there. Everyone was welcoming and friendly, from the students to the staff. The classes were challenging but allowed you to work your best and achieve higher goals. There was always lots of support and the school felt like a big family. I have lots of fond memories and can not wait to go back for my reunions. I highly recommend this school district as it provides exceptional education in all of their schools, from the various elementary to the high school.
Academically excellent with wonderful faculty. Extensive slate of AP course offerings. Extremely strong theatre arts program. Enormous array of student engagement opportunities. Very easy to become involved in sports teams, community service, arts/music and science clubs.
