I had REALLY high hopes for this school! My daughter and I picked it because we had heard great things about it, we visited it and it seemed to have a lot to offer, great sports and other extra curriculars. Well, if you are looking for a school where a 6th grader can jump into all the action DO NOT pick this school. It has HORRIBLE communication, so if you're not on the PTA or otherwise actively involved, because you have work and other things that you need to do, don't expect to be kept in the loop about anything. Also, we were told almost immediately after the start of the school year that it would be a waste of my daughter's time to even try out for volleyball, as most 6th graders don't make it. Drama Club - nope - they didn't have auditions or anything it was just random, some kids who wanted in got in and some, like my daughter didn't. So far she has wanted to do volleyball, drama club and softball and hasn't gotten to do any. There has been NO communciation about when practices or tryouts are for any sports. Nothing. A total disappointment!!!!
