I like the safety and resources, as well as the support the school counselor, Lisa Starr gave. I wished that there were more staff members like this. The ones there are very cruel to the students.

The teachers at this school are amazing! Every single one that I've met has been extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. Grading is always fair and you receive the grade that you earn. They engage with the students and ultimately become like friends.
The principals are very involved as well as the guidence counsler. There very on you about the dress code they even apply the dress code top the parents. The office staff is amazing, very respectful. But none of then compare to the teachers who to me are absolutly perfect.
I wouldnt be where I am today without them.
