There are some academic programs, like lexia and things in that nature. There are art, music, sports, and extracurricular activities like drama club-scholastic bowl-environmental club. This school does Valedictorian and Saludictorian. There is a fitness award at the end of the year. The facilities are nice, airy, and clean. The level of parent involvement is improving at a very nice rate, as PTO hot lunches and similar activities arise.
