This school strives for the success of the young adult. They have many college-prep classes that prepare these young adults for college and for life. I was very impressed at my child's orientation. Her counseler went over everything in detail, which I have never experienced before. Goals, expectations, class size, class scheduling, block scheduling, like they have in college, which I think is fantastic. My child has already excelled just because of the block scheduling. The school is not too big, and has a very nice "hometown" high school feeling. We love it. I'm very impressed with this school and would STRONGLY recommend it to all.
