Since the school decided to give every one of their students an iPad, educational quality at the school has decreased sharply because the skilled teachers are forced to use useless tools in their classrooms rather than relying on their considerable talents.

This school is much like a private school. It's clean, and safe. Everyone minds their own business and gets along well. The teachers and teaching is excellent. I would recommend this school to anyone. My daughter is a freshman, and absolutely loves it!
