I loved my teachers most of all! They were always there for me and made sure to challenge their students in the best way possible! I did not like the grading system though and I felt slightly cheated being a 4.0 student but forced to accept a 3.86. I took and did well in 5 AP classes. Student motivation is also a problem in my school and not many students want to put in the effort to work hard.

I think my experience overall was pretty great. The teachers were very nice and helpful, there were numerous opportunities to excel and take advanced classes, and the teachers and staff strove to create a positive experience for the students.
I have found this High School to offer my children excellent opportunities in academics, sports, and after school activities. The fine arts programs are building and one day I hope to see stringed instruments added in the program.The counselors are extremely helpful. Most of their teacher students have become life long mentors. Glad to be apart of this school community.
