As a 2005 alumni i would like to say that because of the lack of enthusiasm in about a third of the teachers there, the school has suffered. test scores are very low on average. now that most of the dedicated teachers are retiring, the curriculum is at best, mediocre. there are some classes that are worth taking, in the advanced and honors programs, but the education offered to the general population is more or less a babysitting program. it is not just the teachers fault of course, the students, again speaking of the majority, have no interest in the fruitless efforts of the instructors. the school has resorted to busy work, to make the time go by faster and about a week of mild test preparation for the act. the rest is a daycare program.

This is a great public high school. While it offers a lot, it is still a close knit type of school. The teachers and administrators do a great job. Unfortunately (because of budget cuts) the school cannot offer as many electives as a larger school; however, the school as a whole is a safe and pleasant environment for all who are there.
