This school presents some wonderful opportunities for students and the facilities are very good. Haven;t run into a BAD teacher yet. Most are excellent and only a couple were less inspired. The principal is dedicated to constant improvement, and I found her very responsive to the few concerns we have. I do wish there was more active activities in the science and engineering areas, but other than that, truley an excellent school.
This school can have alot of high ratings but that doesn't tell you how many students are suffering with poor grades and how little they are assisted. THe "guidance" area of this school needs some weight lifted from old-timers and some new younger life brought in who really want to help students succeed and offer encouragement. There is some real cliquish adminsitrative stuff in this high school that needs improvement - lots of "favoritism". School if overrated...atmosphere is bad.
