Thus is a very good school. The Principal has great compassion for the students. The District Curriculum, has a Curriculum into place that doesn't allow students to take Art or Music if they are below average in Language Arts or Math. To me its separating the students and making the lower average students stand out more and feel punished. I understand the need to place extra classtime into these subjects to help them, but all work and no play doesn't cut it. Students need to express their creativity to help them. Art and Music have been known to boost the average Math Scores. Then why aren't we using it?

I like this school, but it is lacking in after school activities for students and many students don't participate in the after-school activities that we do have. Maybe a bit more advertising of the the clubs won't hurt. A lot of smart people, facilities are swell, but no excitement overall.

Excelent Academics but falls way short on extra curricular activities. Have teachers coaching sports that they appear to know little or nothing about. Very demoralizing for athletes. After school functions appear to be out of touch with students.
