School Reviews

  • Recommended March 30, 2010 - I attend this school, and I love it. I think that the teachers are excellent instructors to the students. Performing and visual arts are very prominent in the school as well as sports. Many students have received the Distinguished Student award for the DSTP, and our sports teams have received awards as well. For example, our girls lacrosse team was just named Team of The State. We have a state of the art school with technology, and a wonderful turf field. Parents are always involved in extra curricular activities and are very incorporated in their student's activities. - Posted by Student/Alumni
