The academic qualities are great and music arts sports are abundent. Parental involvement is very high. The facilities leave a lot to be desired based on the median income of the town. There is no pool and the buildings are in need of repair. There are problems with the roof leaking and many students have problems with asthma & allergies including the staff. Buckets are placed in the hallways on rainy days. Some classrooms have to be closed to the buildings problems
