I went to this school for 9 years, and absolutely loved it. All the teachers were amazing and almost all of the classes. There are a ton of extracurriculars like the SOAR program, band and chorus, and school sports. It is also a really nice school- we recently got a new Maker Space.
My students love this school and I recommend it for other parents to.
