We are not having the positive experience that some of the other posts indicate. At best, the school is mediocre. The headmaster is sincere, but an ineffectual leader of the academic staff, as well as an astonishingly poor public speaker. The latter being an essential skill of an administrator. The facilities are improving, but still lag behind any average high school. There is no auditorium, or even a standard length track! On family night, the teachers talk a good game of being available for extra help, but good luck finding one 10 minutes after dismissal, or before first bell. Several times, we have tried to discuss issues with specific teachers, and are ignored, or met with an unwarranted defensive attitude. This is in utter contrast to the fine K-8 school (GSB) that feeds into LA. This school will have to do for most locals, as neighboring schools are inconvenient and little or no better. But, send you kids to private school if you can afford to do so, or move to a better school district.
