This school has everything a student needs. The recently renovated classrooms are state-of-the-art, with Elmos and smart boards in every class, and a lab of nearly 30 Macs. The teachers really connect with the student, and the administration is involved highly in the campus. The bands are award-winning (Reno!), and our choir feeds into the national #1 choir at Los Alamitos High School. This is an amazing school!
