I attend this school and I've been highly content about being here. I don't think I would rather be in any other school. The teachers can be better but otherwise that, that discipline and academics here for great, especially the engineering, art and performing arts. Being any of those programs consist in having discilpine and goos academics in order to compete or travel anywhere.

You better have your child prepared to learn here! I love the atmosphere and that they actually make the kids learn while supporting them. If you aren't an involved parent, don't bother sending your kid here!
