I Am so glad I went to this school I couldn't have picked a better to attend, the sports are great. Everyone is pretty nice you don't need to be in a sport to be known everyone had their own group and there is stuff for everything up to stuff like sports teams and farming or constructing I think this is one of the best schools in the whole state and this is the place to be if you want good teachers and good sports programs.

This school is not perfect but nor are any others. The majority of the children are open minded to all different backgrounds and differences. I have 5 so I have been through each school, never have I not had issues that came up not resolved quickly and with good discussion.

If your child is an athlete and you prefer homogeneous groups and narrow-minded adults, then this is the school for you!
