    Featured Review: Sophomore says It's a bit stressful as you only have the option to be in AP or IB classes, and sometimes the staff are strict just because they can be, but overall it's a pretty great school. It's small so it's...Academics are pretty good. Lots of options and college credits.The arts classes aren't great. They're really underfunded because they have to pay for all the IB and AP tests and stuff. Teachers are great but expect to have to provide a lot of your own materials...Athletics are fine. Teams aren't great but funding is reasonable.Plenty of options for electives. I personally reccomend the Army JROTC class, which generally feels like a big family and has provided me a lot of opportunities..
