Terrible school. More worried about fiscal responsibility then actual teaching. No hands on labs. Does not push the students. Thinks that getting the students enrolled in asu is a success. Guidance counselor is no help for getting scholarships or apply to colleges out of state because this school thinks the student should not aim above state or community college. Honors classes are basic class with one or 2 extra assignments. This school only redeeming quality is the college reimbursement plan but the students sacrificing alot for that one feature. my daughter has been to 3 highschools through out the country and this is the worst. She is also always top of her class so I pity the kids who are not self motivated because they will get no help here.

It is a very small school so you feel more connnected to your teachers and peers. It gets you ready for college by encouraging duel enrollment in your junior and senior year. The teachers are very good, and mostly everyone has lots of school spirit. The cafetaria food is not the best because it is only served to elementary and middle school students. Most high school students leave early, bring their own, or eat off campus. (Another good thing). They are strict on dress code. It is a charter school so sometimes things can be old or cheap but it is not dingy.
The teachers and staff here are incredible and truly care about the students' future, the one on one interactions here are the reason why I loved my time here!
