I would recommend this school. The teachers and staff do a great job of maintaining the facilities as well as a great environment for learning. The administration is developing curriculum that is challenging the students but also rewarding them for their successes. There are many programs for those that WANT to participate ranging from sports, to band, to chess clubs. If you have a want there is a way.
