I love this school, both of my boys actually like going to school now. The sports programs I feel are the best there. My youngest son is so busy with homework & sports practices that I hardly ever seen him some days. He's doing awsome in all of his classes and even wants to go to school everyday.

this is a school where people in it can feel comfortable around teachers and students as a former student all i can say is this school is the best. i've been to a lot of schools in my life most of them small, but when i stepped into this school i felt lost. it took me a few days to learn the ways around but i got the hang of it with a little help from my friends and the teachers. the sports teams are very competitive i remember going to the football games and watching the cheerleaders cheer unfortunatly i was only there for a short time and i had absolutely no time to try out. of corse beacause i was in a lot of other clubs they had. i leave you with this last comment if you are a freshman don't ask upper classman for directions,(the fourth floor isn't real.)
