School Reviews

  • Recommended June 20, 2012 - Academic programs are mediocre/based towards average students. Availability of music/art/sports programs are fine. They have a lovely old collection of athletic awards hanging around, but not many academic awards. They do not encourage academic competitions. The facilities are fine. Control of students leaves much to be desired (including change in leadership). - Posted by Student/Alumni
