As I attended all four years of my high school years I must say they do prepare you for college as well as building your network & knowing your community. I don't know about since I've left but there were a handful of good teachers, who were willing to help the willing. On the bad note they got a little to involved in a students personal life & almost made it the topic of there conversations. Like there were some good teachers there were bad teachers like in all schools who tend to favor students. I personally would not send my child there unless I looked over my other options.
