School Reviews

  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - great orchestra, we need more players. but its way too strict, and the dean for middle school is unstable.the dress code is ridiculous, and they should really have cooking classes and other fun classes that STUDENTS would enjoy. And school DOESN''T have too be boring,since were one of the best schools in the nation how about having a little bit of a reward for our achievements! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended September 06, 2010 - This school is not the school to send you rchild to if your child want to getinto and after school activity. They have not way to bus the kids home, so unless you are a stay home mom or dad and can make your own hours. The office staff is also very rude and not very helpful. - Posted by Parent
