I've been going to this school for 12 years now and I absolutely love it! I wouldn't change anything. This school has it's ups and downs just like every other school, but I guarantee we have the most school spirit. Let's Go, Wildcats!

Teachers are not focused on ensuring that your child learns the material they present in the class. They become frustrated when a student asks them to clarify information that was not presented clearly. The school system is also not interested in working with students that are advanced beyond their age level grade.
