This school has a average academic program but as a student I would not suggest this school. I have been bullied, pushed, and hit by other students in front of the staff in yet they do not punish this students. I would not recommend this school to anyone because of the staff's behavior to students being bullied.

I believe that the quality of the academic programs is about average with an average number of extracurricular activities. I do not see alot of parental involvement but I believe most of that is because it is only encouraged superficially and not for real change or input. The facilities are below average since the high school is running out of space for its students and the hallways are crowded between classes and the lunchroom is filled above capacity.
