Its a really good school. There is alot of parental involvment. they have a parent group, that plans events. The facilities are good, but the doors need work on in the cafeteria. There is almost always water on the floor, but you still have privacy. There are no athletic awards, but there is acedemic awards at the end of the quarter. We have music there, PE every week. There are special class rooms for special needs people.
