I love the school a lot!!!!! The counselors in the West House Office are very helpful.
Not very happy with the LARGE SIZE of school and that it has about 3,200 students in it with grades from 9-12. Seems VERY OVERWHELMING for students coming from a middle school.Not satisfied at all!!!!!!
Loved everything about this school
