This school is lacking in academic leadership. If a student is an athlete they are allowed to do as they please. To bully, to harass, to disrespect the teachers.There are no art classes.Ag-science is a required subject for most students. The school is still in the 1950's as far as their social conscience. Help is needed for this school.

I would definatly reccomend this school It is geared more toward a private, instead of public, Much more diciplined than any other school. Sports are great, We have a lot of gifted students. We could use art class. But we are rebuilding so a lot of things will be added.

Everything was wonderful when i went to school there. The teachers cared about the students and whether they learned the material. THere was a few exceptions, but those are even at bigger schools. I graduated in 2004. There has been some turn around in staff, but the majority is still the same and pretty cool. I would recommend this school.
