5  1/11/2007
I would recommend this school because I believe students can achieve an incredible amount of acedemics and sports here. I do believe that parents should be more involved in this school. I think the facilities should be stronger. The academic and athletic award should be given out to the ones that are on the sports team but that are also passing their class.
