If you are white and Christian, then this is the school for you. There is very little racial diversity in this district. Despite the attempt by some parents to create a diversity focus group, the school doesn't address the issue at all. Teachers do not try to make students from diverse populations feel comfortable. A small group of parents comprise the advisory team which meets conveinently at 9:00 in the morning - when most parents are working. There is no real inclusiveness for kids who come from underrepresented groups.

I love this school district. My daughter is safe, happy, surrounded by well rounded and polite students. I feel as though she is in the best environment and getting a proper education.
My experience with this school was very disappointing. There is a tremendous lack of professionalism amongst the staff, and there is a large swath of the student population that suffer from an entitlement complex. I would not recommend this school to anyone who is from a minority religious group or racial ethnicity.
