It is a very small school that is academically challenging being an IB school. Being a small school, there is little high school experience, but that improves the relationship between students.

This school is actually a middle school and high school now, but either way, I feel ashamed that I had to waste four years of my life there. The one thing I can say to compliment this school is that I love the people in it and I love the new building. Other than that, I hardly appreciate the principles, or some of the teachers. I can't complain much about the work because 12th grade was bound to be difficult. However, I am just embarrassed that people go around saying "don't come here". It really is embarrassing. I really wish I was smarter back when high school was around the corner. I could've tried harder on the PSSA and applied to many schools. Instead, I am stuck in Hill-Freedman
My rate/review of the overrall experience at school is flawless. The teachers, facilitators, and parents are connected in a comparible family relationship which assits the education recieved by the students. Students at this school are cared for in fashion that you could not find anywhere else in our district. We are just beginning as a high school and currently ranked at twelve and won two Blue Ribbon awards. These results show our nurturing approach to everybody's education including special education can beat any budget crisis or longer standing high schools in the world.
