This school has great academic opportunities. The teachers are all fantastic and want every student to succeed. The administration has done a great job at making sure the students are always protected from anything hazardous. The school is a bit crowded, but the grad rate is fantastic. We have a football, baseball, golf, track, softball, soccer, and cross country team. Every student here is offered the same opportunity as the next. Parents are also involved a lot in the activities. Most student's parents are graduates from this school so its very family oriented. I love this school and i would recommend it to anyone.
