Normally i would say that this school is a good school to get an educational experience, but recently my son was forced into an outpatient program for the "Addiction/Abuse" of certain items. The school did not have any proof however, and now I am waiting for more facts so I go before the school board. There Principle and Assistant Principle are very blunt in discipline. They dont think logically and they try to intervene too much with the students social lives. Ive spent over $320 to help my daughter graduate, and now she cant unless she goes through a program that is not needed for her. I do not recomend this school to anyone who wants there child to live there own life. a. fair b. Very good programs, they have choir, band , marching band, and a variety of electives dealing with the musical arts. c. n/a d. n/a e. differing from the kids there is and isnt alot of parent involvment, but this is common everywhere.
