The principals, Mrs. Crosetti, Mr. Atkins, and Mr. Lewis have made a huge impact on this school! Ms. Nelson is a great addition to administration. They are "all in" and both the students and parents have noticed. They care about the students and it shows. The teachers are top-notch. The counselors will help in any way they can to get the courses a student needs, even if they have to go through a different avenue. Dealing with construction and traffic has been very smooth, even on the very first day. The effort that the administration, faculty, and staff have put in to make this school year (2018-2019) the best it can be if very noticeable. Love this school! I wouldn't want my children to be anywhere else in the district!

It's like family. Teachers really care about your education and about you personally. They go above and beyond what is expected. Love this school! Go Tigers!
It's a small school so everyone knows each other. The teachers are very friendly. School needs more funding. Also academics aren't the best and some teachers don't always teach.
