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.

We've had a difficult year with administration. Teachers belittling the students and student bullying that has my child afraid to even step on campus.
