I love it here. I'm involved in the sports program and other activities. Our work enviroment is among the best. It's a small enough school that everyone here is family.

Very limited educational benefits at the school. Seems that the school is a little to worried about sports and not offering demanding classes.

I like some of the teachers.. But im not crazy about some of the rules.. I understand some of them are for safety reasons but some arent necessary... I hate the lunches at our school because you have 30 minutes.. That leaves 15 - 20 minutes to stand in line to get ur food.. And 10-15 minutes to find a table.. Eat.. Talk to friends .. And then trow everything away

I believe that they shouldnt be so strict about certain things such as dress code and things of that nature. I also believe that the children should be allowed time with the teachers after school for more one on one time especially those who are having trouble in certain classes such as social studies us& world history,math,and science.
