I was here for a few years. It honestly wasn't that fun. I only had a few decent teachers. The old home ed. teacher was one of the worst teachers I've had. She wasn't encouraging or resourceful. She taught us useless crap that we literally learned in 6th grade. It was just basic stuff you'd do at home like prep food, cook, bake, do the laundry and on occasion write a check. The only thing I really grasped from this school was how to ignore people. It was a complete mess.

Academic programs are mediocre/based towards average students. Availability of music/art/sports programs are fine. They have a lovely old collection of athletic awards hanging around, but not many academic awards. They do not encourage academic competitions. The facilities are fine. Control of students leaves much to be desired (including change in leadership).
