Overall, I think it's a good school, there are great teachers who always encourage you to do your best. I find it very hard to fail with all the help provided. I'd send my kids here. Sure there are some kids that just lack motivation themselves but it's not anyway they cant be helped.

The academic programs are okay, but the achievement level among the students is disappointing. The Facilities are fine. The commitment level in the students shows either a bad population of kids who don't care much for their future. I just don't recommend this school for anyone to send their kids to if you want them to succeed and get into a good college afterwards.
