The teachers are amazing in fact the only reason I put four stars is because of one but the rest are undoubtedly wonderful the really make even the most boring subjects fun to learn and help with students whom have different ways of learning and are very knowledgeable. Hands down it is the best school I have ever been to, and was the most wise decision of my schooling career, they even helped me graduate a year early
There are not many only school council, and the moon buggy build but nothing else because lcps will not give them the funding even though the school is becoming very popular
