Mediocre is a better word than average. An average student can certainly thrive in this school. My child is a sophomore this year and one of the top students.( This is my second child to attend to this school.) There have been virtually no challenging courses for her. Her greatest challenge would seem to be the lack of teachers prepared to teach higher level students. Homework is a rarity as she can complete homework during the actual class. They have eliminated honors physical science and biology for freshman and sophomores. Foreign languages are laughable: The AP Spanish class was so poor that they eliminated it after years of no student scoring higher than a 3 on the AP Spanish exam. The 4th year French teacher does not even speak French in the classroom. The principal is a proponent of "heterogeneous" classrooms but the teaching staff is not professionally trained to teach to such diverse classrooms. Slower learners are still left behind and the brighter students become apathetic. Fortunately, her friends are several of the other brightest students. Otherwise, I would find a way to send her to Proctor Academy.

This school is ok. It often has technical problems every day that makes the teacher's job harder. Also, some of the Teachers do not belong in that particular position. overall i enjoy most of my time here.

Teachers are narrow minded and students get away with too much.

I graduated from this school in 1999. Its a great school with intellegent teachers who not only love to teach but are good at it too. There is a real feeling of community. Check out the Project CLIMB program, which is an amazing place where students really come together regardless of what 'group' they are in. Or the Drama club which produces great plays that people who don't have kids at this school like to come see. Or the athletic department where being a team player is more important than being a 'superstar.' When I was there I would have liked it had foreign languages been available to younger students.

I am very happy with this school system. Our son has thrived with the teachers and the support system the school has.
