This is a great school with MUCH to offer. The students here are treated like Middle School age students should be treated. There is great communication between the school and parents. Parents have to be involved, this isn't elementary school so you aren't going to be spoon fed information.

Very disappointing after hearing what a good school it was. Very uncaring attitude from principals, teachers, guidance etc... Huge lack of communication between the parents and teachers and the teachers don't seem to really make an effort or care. Wouldn't recommend overall.
