The academic programs are very advanced but the teachers let us take it by our own pace. Music, Art and sports are actually an encore class (sports is PE). And we compete with other schools and we have Honor Roll. The rooms are nice and big to hold a large class, we have the MPR (the multi purpose room), the student commons (like a lunch room), an Art room, a Band room, and a music room. Also the parents are highly involved and some host school events and love to drop thier kids off because it is a safe and possitive school. I do reconmend it greatly.
