School Reviews

  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - As a parent, I have been very impressed with the dedication with the staff and how hard they work to ensure student success. We are from an upper middle class family and found that our son fit in very well with the other students. He has a lot of nice friends and generally enjoys his time there. They are very strict when it come to behavior and drugs. This is also a plus for us knowing that he is (relatively safe) from temptations. They do have an over-the-top basketball program which provides a lot of excitement at the school. However, our son does not play basketball and we have found that the basketball does not get in the way of their focus on the achievement of their students. - Posted by Parent
