Really enjoy the school! Unfortunate cuts in spending, yes, but it's still a great option for Juniors and Seniors to delve into and learn about the major they may want to pursue in life.

Horrible school. Administrators are rude and uncaring. Teachers have stopped caring due to pay cuts. I can only hope they fire and completely switch the entirety of the administrators.

This school is great for students who know where they're going in life and have something they love, like art, theatre etc, but the student/teacher ratio is way off. There are 29 children in a class my child is in, and 28 in another. The teacher simply cannot get to know her student as well because there are so many kids.
