The school in general is great and it has a variety of classes that they offer. They have a program called internet academy which gives a student a chance to take a course of their choice. But the school needs to improve on STEM education for the students. The staff is great and all but they need to communicate with students more often. Overall good school, but has some minor and major flaws.

I like the staff and the school campus is great compared to portables but the school in general needs improvement. The education on STEM needs to be enhanced a lot more within the teachers and students.
