The school was ridiculously crowded when I attended, but that did not prevent me or any of my classmates from receiving a quality education and succeeding if we really wanted to. The teachers were top notch and the school's amenities were also excellent. Given the enrollment size, I could not imagine teachers doing a better job than they already were. Great teachers, great school spirit and great facilities!

This school is way too crowded to give kids a safe and educational learning environment. The halls are crowded, not even split schedules help.
