I transferred here my junior year from Quincy high and honestly probably one of the best high school decisions I’ve made. Staffs and students are super friendly and helpful. Academics is amazing. The diversity and inclusiveness at this school is amazing! Many many clubs and organizations that students can be apart of. Such a great community to be apart of!

Great school, great teachers, great atmosphere! The lunch food could be better and healthier. Interior remodels are needed.
Nearly all of the teachers are very good at their jobs, and most of them are also really nice! The only exception to this is about half the science department because the head of the science department who is also a chemistry teacher is very crazy and can be really rude. Also, the guidance counselors are ok, but the school psychologist is amazing! I would choose going to her over my own guidance counselor! Because the school student body is so smart, academics is very competitive most of the time. Overall, the school is pretty great especially if you are very school-spirited and into sports.
