I have two daughters at this school. I think they have received an execptional education, and this would be supported by academic scholarships offered, and scores on the ACT which place my oldest in the top percentages compared to other students across the nation. My experience is that the majority of the teachers do a great job, there are a couple that do not relate as well with the students, or struggle in teaching to different learning styles. Overall, they truly want the students to master content, and are enthused about student learning. My middle daughter has a learning disability, she has had to learn to advocate for herself, but her teacher's do make accommodations that allow her to be a successful student. There are problems in any high school, so much of it for any student, is who they choose as friends, and how much effort are they willing to put forth. We need to learn to support community, through good and bad, if you do our children can learn a lot about perseverance, caring for others, see the resilience within themselves. With their BIOIC club, and other programming, they do want to help develop educated citizens, with great character.
