This is an excellent school. Friendly, helpful, resourceful, clean and cared for in all aspects. Respect,Responsibility, Tolerance and Safety are practiced at this school. A suitable reprimand system for students who are misbehaving, and support system for students who need it are put into place when needed. Faculty are easy to work with, and approachable should a student need assistance.
