This school is great, if you are a really good student. But the classes can be hard and the teachers may Removed at... teaching. It is a really small school (usually less than 100 kids per grade) so there aren't too many clubs, but you can always start one. The kids here are more or less pretty good people, and they take bullying extremely seriously, and there is a great guidance counselor. You will have a pretty good high school experience. Could be worse,.
Academics are great but administration is seriously lacking, making it not worth the trouble. There are many other schools around that would be a much better choice. As a former student, get your kids to a bigger high school. It will TREMENDOUSLY help with social aspects of their development. Soon to be ex-principal Mike Barth has been tearing that school apart for the past 2 years. Facilities are embarrassing for all sporting events and the school itself is falling apart. They are planning to rebuild in the next few years.
