The last four years here have been amazing. There's just a feeling of family and community in the air here. Most everyone here has come from a hard background but they don't let it get to them. They push forward. Just like the school's mascot, the Phoenix, we all rise from the ashes!

The school is a nice place to go if you focus on your school work and not get involved with useless drama.
Every teacher here truly cares about all students even those aren't their own. They prepare you for more than just college; they prepare you for life. These teachers give it 110% without fail.
