Hi, I would like to know if you are participating in the Public School Choice Program?

The academic programs offered at this school are exceptional. It offers an immense variety of AP and IB courses along with many electives, ranging from The US Presidents to All About Chocolate. Students have the ability to be involved in many activities with meetings in the morning and after school. Clubs can be based on similar interests, or a desire to compete. All students have no problem doing the HSPA and do exceptionally well on the SATs. The teachers clearly show enthusiasm in teaching and have an unbelievable background, as many teachers have their PhDs. The PPO keeps the parents closely involved in the students' lives and school activities. This school can unquestionably be labeled the dream-school.
