This school is outstanding! The faculty and staff are extremely professional and have high expectations of their students. They are also encouraging, supportive, and go out of their way to help students succeed. Moreover, the curriculum is challenging and college-prep, and my children were more than prepared for college because of the knowledge they gained from the curriculum and the use of their Apple MacBooks. In addition to the curriculum, my children had the opportunity to participate and excel in multiple extra-curricular activities. This school truly is top-notch.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers and administrators really care about their students. There are very few discipline problems. The students are in accelerated college prep classes and something like 97% of the seniors go on to college!
