I wasn't sure if i should send my child to this school because of the size and amount of students that attend here made me nervous. We ended up having no problems or issues throughout her last year of high school. When she struggled in math the teachers were willing to help her and truly spend time helping her understand the lesson. Her grades improved significantly, she made a ton of new friends, and enjoyed joining a few clubs and sports. Even though we hesitated sending her here in fear of it being such a big school, that isn't totally diverse it ended up being one of the best decisions we have made. I will end up having my two sons going when they are high school age too.
