School Reviews

I loved this school. It was the second high school I went to and it was my favorite. The academics were awesome. I took 6 AP classes my senior year and the teachers all were willing to work with us and wanted us to pass the exams. The math department is fantastic they have a near 100% pass rate for the last 10 years or something close to that. I know everyone passed both Calculus AB and BC (depending on which ones they took) the year took those exams (my junior year). The building itself is awesome. My only complaint is the single doors and narrow stairways that we were trying to squeeze a ton of students out of during firedrills and between classes, but it wasn't too bad, you just learned quickly which routes were the quickest and there was plenty of time.
