No, I would not have my child go to this school. The teachers are disorganized and can be unkind to students. Especially during covid, they apparently don't really care about the students. I would have my child go to Marana school district or Catalina school district. If I could go back, I would have brought a house on the other side of town, a waste of my tax money.

Great school with caring people. Teachers are rigorous, but understanding. Smartboards and technology in many classes. The school has a clubs galore; students can definitely get involved as a Night Hawk!
