School Reviews

5   9/26/2007
This is a semi-new school. The district and high school have been around for a while but the school was just rebuilt. There are lots of choices to join clubs and many options for classes. This school is for 10-12 graders, not 9-12. Parents are highly involved and we have many sports. It is an all around great school.
