School Reviews

I love this school! My daughter graduated in 2013 and my son is currently a junior. Despite the varying social and economic statuses that exist, students treat each other with respect and there are no typical "cliques" like most schools have. There are no locks on the lockers and the students are treated like young adults. The administration, staff and teachers are there for the students, and the parents are very involved. I am pleased to say that my daughter gained leadership skills, study habits and the maturity she needed to reach her goal to attend a top national university.
