I have attended here for 7 years from junior high to high school. Teaching staff are personable and top notch educators. They care about the student as a whole. Always willing to help even if they are no longer their student. It is safe despite its location, I have never been in danger here. Their sports programs are diverse and plentiful. Great coaching staff! Many field trips and study abroad opportunities within the school. A diverse student population.
