Great teachers and facility is decent. There is bias and when students bring up issues with other students, this bias is made very clear (often no actions are taken against some students even if many other students have frequently had issues with them).

There are many school assemblies about bullying, drug and alcohol safety, and online safety, and all staff make it clear that if a student is having a problem with another student, or even at home, then they can talk to any adult in the building. There are large displays of artwork created by the students in the hallways encouraging students to work hard, care for others, and stay away from drugs and alcohol. Multiple cameras have been installed throughout the school, and the doors are locked during the day with a buzz in system for visitors, who receive a pass after being let in to the office, which is right next to the front door.
The school is well-kept and very cleaned. It is very caught up with technology and wants students to be using the most up to date programs as if in a professional environment. There are many ways for students to receive tutors, through teachers, students, and teachers may even recommend a tutor that will meet with a student after school when they are available.
