Most of the teachers are great, the principal is nice, and the students aren't that bad. The school focuses on helping the students progress and there are many programs and people to help them and their goals.
When I first heard about this school I was told that there were numerous clubs, sports, and academic opportunities. Sadly for me there was almost none of this. The school offers only two AP courses and only this year began after school clubs. However despite these negatives the schools atmosphere brings its scoring way up. Staff and student alike are all kind and bullying is rarely found here.
