It's pretty good, the community is nice but most of the kids don't want to be there. The school teaches a lot and most of the teachers are nice. The academic programs are great. I have learned a lot since being at this school. Of course, it can be boring. It's school, so what do you expect. In short, I would definitely recommend this school.

It is a wonderful school, but it is sometimes boring. It has a lot of drama, so I don't know if you want to get your kids into that. The food is wondering, but sometimes it doesn't look good.
