There acadimic programs include almost everything from clubs to sports even a junior civitan club which i personally like. The music program is very outstanding thanks to Miss Spence.Art is the only thing that is not there that i wish they had! They give out athletic awards almost every friday , academic is given out , but i am not sure when. There facilitie is as well great! There teacher are ready to have fun , but at the saame time learn. Last , but not least the parents.The parents are contacted every so often to let them know what is going on.They are also able to come to the school any time they wish.They are invited at least every month. THIS SCHOOL IS GREAT
