I think this is an over all good school. The teachers, principals, etc. are really great. One of my favorite is Ms.Chambers. I have am an office worker for her and all the people in there I can say are truly doin there job! I also feel they add a great number of extra curricular activities for each, every, and all students. We also have a new principal working in the back office and i personally think she's great! GOOD LUCK~
