    9-12,

    111 Niche users give it an average review of 4.1 stars.

    Featured Review: Niche User says I liked the sense of belonging of the students, the focus on academics,the sense of self esteem of the students and the "can do" attitude of the students. It is a strong believer that students must have a strong attitude towardlearning, physical fitness and duty to America which more American students should have.I agree that there must be more opportunities to take Aptitude tests that areallowing students get college credits. But more important is the overall sense of value that the student has in themselves. This is very important to the future opportunities that come to a student.I have seen a lot of approaches to schooling over the years, and this one fits intoday's arena where uncertainty exists for the population as a whole. I think the students coming out of this school will be very prepared for thefutures they are facing which are quite different from the schools of the past. It is a school worth looking at right now. I would highly support this school..
