It's been a great school for my kids. The educational quality is better than most larger schools and the teachers seem to really care. The teachers have dealt with a lot of stress and disappointment there over the years, but they have always kept their focus on the students.
This school has a great elementry but the high school has a lot to be desired. The programs offered are very limited. The high school edeucation does not get the students ready for college. The sports programs are also very limited.
On an educational level, the school is great. There are several things that need to be revamped, but the school chooses to spend precious educational monies on a new gym when the old one is perfectly good. Most of the parents in this area are involved in their children's education, but there is poor attendance at the sports events.
This school has worked hard to improve the academic courses offered. This school has excellent Teachers and Principals. This school could have more sport programs so that all children could be involved and not just a select few. The discipline in this school has much to be desired. This school does not teach moral conduct with students. For a small school, there is a large amount of female fights yearly.
