The school does a great job serving a large, economically and socially diverse community. The school has a large number of AP courses and regularly ranks in the top in the state in math, debate and other academic competitions. It has a large sports and arts program as well.

School's ok academically, but very poor as far as concerns, cares and responding to students with medical needs. Will be transferring my child to a smaller high school with hopes of better results.
