Our school is awesome! We have the most number of CTE classes in the district if I am not mistaken which ranges from Finance, Culinary, Nursing, Digital and Video Technology, etc. The guidance dept is very supportive and encouraging. If you do what is expected from you as a student the teachers are gonna be really lenient with you but if you do the opposite, I'm sorry but you deserve whatever the consequences are. And also we have a student-run bank at our school which pays the head tellers a good amount. I graduated from here and got into top 300 schools. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND MY SCHOOL!!!
