This is an amazing environment! The faculty is wonderfully accommodating; the school is continuously expanding, and the resources available to staff and students are plentiful!

My daughter attended this school and it was a complete disaster. The academic quality was inferior and the teaching staff was incompetent. Parental involvement was low but I think that starts at the superintendent's office because he is not very parent friendly. Based on the high tax base, this is one of the worst districts I've ever been in.
