School Reviews

5   5/3/2010
Academic rigor, technical skills training, and an opportunity to gain numerous life skills; this school has been a tremendous find for my high school son. He loves this school and it's staff. Pros: small class size, caring staff, academic and community oportunities, specialized technical classes. Cons: no art or music, no electives (technical pathway decides coursework), no direct bussing (can be bussed to regular high school and catch bus to MTCHS-just takes longer)
