School Reviews

The quality of acacademic programs is excellant. There should be more choices for music other than choir or band. THer classes should include more advanced topics for students who hae excelled in classes and wish to have their knowledge tested. Keep on giving academic and athletic rewards. The facilities are nice, though having a sky jack for the wrestling mats wouldn't hurt. I also believe that 5 mph for a speed limit in the facilty parking lot is excessively low. I car doesn't even have an idle speed of 5 mph. I believe the speed limit should be corrected to a speed of around 15 mph.
