I started this school in my sophomore year of high school and although I was anxious about this decision, I am happy about the opportunities it has given me as a student. Due to dual enrollment courses being a part of the school's schedule, I got to take classes that interested me as wells as the chance to work and discuss advanced topics with professors. I think that the school is amazing in getting students ahead, however, it can sometimes lack a "high school" experience. The administration is very good at communicating with students and keeping them informed on any changes as well as providing support for anything a student may be experiencing.
Amazing school! Is a great balance of a challenging environment that is also supportive and encouraging. They focus on ensuring that all students can be the best versions of themselves and thrive academically.
