Everyone that's interested I went here I'm a graduate. They have care centers inside for babies they take care of your babies while u study. They have sports classes wrestling, Swimming, Hockey & more they got a guitar, violin, piano, hand classes. If your special ed like super special they have para who help them and walk them through the class. I was almost falling didn't care before until they help me open my eyes on time that's why I love this school. Just go in with the mindset you won't get distracted by dumb people without a goal and focus on graduating.
