Great teachers. Poor bureaucratic and micro-managing administration that does not support them (only a select few) resulting in low morale and less than positive professional outlook . Despite that teachers find a way to do their jobs to the best of their ability and look out for their students. If you are into STEM this is the place for you. Lots of support for STEM. Other areas live in the shadows. Especially electives, ESOL, and special education. Very little choices for electives and extracurricular activities especially considering the school once had one of the largest ranges of available electives and activities in the district. Located in a middle class sub-urban area, the school is secure and clean.

Great teachers. I just don't like the fact that we have 6 periods which is twice as much homework as most people. Other then that great school always clean.
