I love this school. It's teachers are very nice and they all teach very well. They are using more electronics now to keep the kids attention and to do more fun stuff and be able to do stuff they couldn't before. The school lunch is also very good there. There are related arts available to everyone during school hours. There are keyboarding, chorus, band, art, gym, teen living, study halls, and tutoring in all subjects. There is also classes that teach you how to type and how to use a computer.
