Posted September 23, 2009

This was a good school. Small class sizes and having the teachers actually know your name makes for a very personalized education. If you need help, you get it and if your advanced, they're always pushing you farther. I went to a large school before junction and the biggest complaint I ever had was the lack of extracurriculars. This is definetly a sports school.
