The academics were average and I loved how they offered college classes but the only issue I have is that there were no AP classes offered and the college classes offered were only for high school seniors.

My son has only participated in the sports during his school years. He has had the opportunity to play baseball, wrestling and football at the varsity level since his freshman year. He loves sports!
It is a small school. My experience at this school wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. The classes are not challenging and they don't offer any AP courses. The teachers don't care about things and it affects the attitude of the students as well.
