The majority of the academic programs are up to par with preparation for college. However, the Physical Science department is somewhat lacking, as is the Math for the preparation for college. The availability of extracurricular activities is vast, with a lot of emphasis on sports. Scholastic and art is not very present though. Academic and athletic awards are present. The facilities, are, unfortunately, not good at all. An entire section of the building has been condemned, what was once known as the library and study area. This has disabled a good part of the center of the school. Parental involvement is normally limited to sports.
