The choice Room takes kids out of class for the complete duration of class time.. It's unfortunate that teachers and deans feel the need to send the child away rather than educate them. Coaches yell and disrespect the children which is Disheartening, they're supposed to be an adult. In the choice room, there is a male teacher that gives racial undertones when kids don't want to clean up after other kids. If you send him the choice, they should not have to clean up. That's not what they're there for.
Excellent school with a great prinicipal and asst principal who really care about the students. Challenging curriculum and the opportunity to earn college credit free by enrolling in Polk State for dual enrollment. Private school education especially if taking the AP or honors courses, this school will enable your child to get scholarships. Also great extra curricular activities that enhance the high school experience
