The academic level of teaching and expectations set were good in terms of preparing me for college. We had wonderful facilities and technology at our fingertips. Speakers and presentations on the college admission process and financial aid were very informative. However, the college counseling support was very weak and of little use to most of us. I feel there needs to be a team of counselors instead of just one advisor. They should be unbiased, knowledgeable about schools beyond a 200-mile radius, utilize technology, recruit more out of state schools from all regions of the country for college visit days, make students aware of scholarships and welcome parent involvement.

A great school for the most part. Teachers are good, safety is good, lots of extra curriculars, but the administration is horrendous. Hopefully this will change!
Great school, great people. A lot of teachers aren’t very good and continue to hold a job because of tenure. Math resource center is a great feature the school has. Don’t forget, great athletics!
