The staff and educators loved to inspire their student’s and truly took their time and invested it into the success of their student’s. Great atmosphere for students and they offer a friendly environment to learn in.
I like how the teachers automatically help you out, even if you don't ask. They are there for you when you need it. The students are nice and helpful to each other. I think that the school could do better for school lunches. Over half the time the students are still hunger, especially if you play after school sports. You don't have enough time to go home and get food, so your not hungry at practice.
