I attended this school from 2013-2017.
I was scrolling on the internet earlier today, and I suddenly thought: “is this school still open?”
And I found it is still open. Therefore I just want to offer my thoughts of this school for anyone’s interested.
Looking back from my past experiences, this is not a good school that you want to sent your kids into.
I used to skip class for days and still get away with it. My parents did not know I skipped so much class and the school did not really notify them.
The teachers did not know their material well, some of them doesn’t try to teach. The class is a waste of time. This is especially true for the AP teachers, since they need to teach deeper material.
The teachers can be kind people. For example, it is easy to get an extension for some assignments from them.
However, they just lack a knowledge for the class. It’s not their fault. But, I do feel my parents really wasted a lot of money on this place.

My daughter is a freshman this year (2018-19). While the school works are demanding, she is happy and learning with the support that she receives from her teachers, colleagues and councelors.

School environment is beautiful and safe. Security guards are on campus 24/7. This is important since many students practices late after school.

You can feel the sencerity of the twachers. The headmaster and the principal greet us daily at the gait. Our collegw councelor always welcome us any time when we have questions.

My wife and I felt that choosing this school was the best decision that we made for our daughter‘s education.
Marantha has helped me grow as a person and as a student through many academic opportunities such as honors and AP courses. The teachers want to see their students succeed in school and will put in extra hours to ensure this is happening. They have set up many after school programs to help with college applications and essays as well as counselors to guide their students through the rigors process of college apps. Classmates are able to bond with one another over their similarities as well as differences through the various clubs that students create or speak freely about within their classrooms about topics and issues of today.
