While small and with limited resources pertaining to sports and extracurriculars, the education that can be received is one of the best. If you put in the work, you'll be more than prepared for college. The teachers care about you, want to work with you to help you succeed. The counselor is fantastic as well; she'll do everything she can to help you either get to college, graduate, or just get to the next day.

For the most part, the education at this school is of a better quality than that of most other standard high schools. Additionally, the incredibly small size (approximately 130 high school students) made the experience much more positive because it opened up opportunities to get to know teachers and made me feel that I was important to the school. However, the small size brings some negative factors with it: fewer options for classes, fewer clubs, and a much less diverse pool of students. Also, the lack of sports meant I had to pay $200 to participate in cross country at another high school, which was a bit of a hassle.
If the student is willing to apply themselves and work hard, going above what the school requires, then the school is a fantastic choice. While many of the elective classes that traditional public schools offer are missing, it grants the students the opportunity to focus more fully on the academic side of learning with their core classes.
