I would recomend this school, because in 2011, I went there for 4 years, and those years held the best memories of my life. The teachers are very sweet and kind. They have really good resources, and I was supplied with everything, including information about what goes on there. I myself am very close with many of the teachers, and my only true friends were there, alongside me. I love the big open reccess yards, and the teachers would always help me if I was in trouble or had problems with schoolwork. I say yes to recommending this amazing, awe- inspiring school!
