The school offers boundless opportunities to succeed. Most of the teachers at the school want their students to be accomplished more than the students. There is an atmosphere of hard work that surrounds the school. For extracurricular activities , there is a great selection of sports and clubs to be apart of. Even for students who struggle, there are tutors that are readily available. There are a few officers that remain at the school for the sole purpose of protecting the school. Parents love to be involved at this school. Most of the funding that goes to sports and clubs comes from the parents. Overall, it is a very well rounded school with tradition of being the best.

The teachers are amazing! I really love working with them. The school counselors are not the best. I also think that there is a lot of students with a negative attitude towards school in general. The ideas are great, but there are some things in the administrations that need to change.
Overall it is a very good school. However, the academics are either rigorous or basic, there is no inbetween for students who may not be ready for academic rigor. There are also very few math and science teachers who actually know what they're doing, unfortunately. However, many teachers within the school are passionate about learning and their students. The extra curricular programs are great but the facilities for fine arts are seriously lacking.
