The school is really good, but not perfect. The classes are very difficult (duel enrollment) or very easy (online). Some teachers are easy grades, others are very hard. The result is everyone's experience (and grade point) are very different. The principle cares deeply about students and does a good job.

This school is great if you have a self starter that needs extra time to pursue a passion. If your child is lazy or trying to avoid a bigger public school, your problem won't be solved here. The duel enrollment college classes are just that - college level classes and are tough. Pros: Challenging classes, flexible schedules, high level sports Cons: A lot of unstructured free time, Could use more support for kids transitioning to college level classes, limited course offerings
