This school was amazing! I attended this school for 4 years and the help and love I got from the staff was nothing but wonderful. I was In sports and I could not have asked for a better support system.

My Daughter graduated in 2010 and it was a great experience for her. The Music program is a great program if you feel your child is not fitting in. Try putting them in Music it does wonders for their self esteem and gives them a place to belong.
