Good school with lots of friendly people. Decently academic course work and a nice variety of extracurricular activities. While the school does have a few issues, I loved my overall experience there.

horrible school, a smoke alarm went, and they lied to parents why, 2 teachers watched a physical fight (not stopping or intervening) then the guy who intervened got a detention, teacher yelled at a student (who was homeless living in a shelter) for getting a poster wrinkled and yelled at her for having a mental breakdown.
