The quality of academic programs are pretty good there are many to choose from,the availibity of music, art, sports programs are ok as well and again there are many to choose from, I don't think there are many academic rewards besides MEAP awards and when kids don't get any awards they feel like they aren's as smart as the other kids, the facilties are sarcastic and mean,they don't have compassion for their jobs or the kids,the custodians are great they always keep the whole school clean,the level of parent involvement is very small there isn't much parent involvemnet other than some moms who decide to be a lunchlady.If you want your child to be a snob who will pick on kids that seem to be "different"than all the others than go ahead and send your child there no one is stopping you, but if you want a child who likes people who are "different" than send your child somewhere else.
