I have been a part of this school system since Kindergarten and I absolutely love it here. The teachers are really sweet and love to help you enhance your skills when having trouble with certain subjects. This also comes with the availability to stay after for tutoring programs. The administrative staff are amazing as well; they are some of the nicest people I've met. I'm glad I was able to grow up in this area and meet these people as well as gain life, long friends. They also offer a variety of different sports and clubs such as girls/boys tennis, track, cross-country, softball, volleyball, co-ed soccer, baseball, basketball, and cheerleading. The clubs include the academic team, chess club, and more. During this COVID-19 pandemic, they have handled things very maturely and wonderfully concerning the worries of students and parents allowing their children back into the school setting. Hats off to the staff; good job!
