This school is smaller in size making teachers pay more attention to your specific work ethic.Also you can tell that the teachers really care about you even though they don’t really have too.You also get to know people quicker because it’s a smaller high school.I think they should add dual credit classes for younger students instead of just honors and advanced placement classes.I think we should have more advanced places courses to.

My child graduated here two thousand fourteen it was a great experience and educational success goals were obtained. Thankful and grateful the charter schools replaced the Gary community school corporation and provided this as an alternative option.
I have been going to this school since 3rd grade and I am a senior now, a lot has change over the years. Every year it gets worse administration wise. My experience at school overall with all years I been here, I would give it 7/10
