Cannot say enough. Wonderful for both of our children. They go on to college well prepared and have wonderful experiences, make friends for life and go on to succeed in life.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 26, 2011

Teachers are caring, concerned, well educated, and interested in the students well being. Excellent food for a school. Modern technology, and for the most part an extremely safe place to be. You will not be disappointed having your child/son/daughter in this school. Special ED can give you the special attention, and the skills you need to prosper. You will make the friends of a life time.

Awesome school, small class sizes. Not too much bullying, and in my experience the teachers are willing to step in when needed. Solid extracurricular activities, plenty of advanced classes are offered, and the majority of the teachers are very good at what they do.

The middle school and high school are combined. No busing. Kids walk or get ride from parents. There is little bullying on school grounds, but in the middle school the teachers tend to look the other way with bullying. Academically the district teaches above average. The gym is not part of the school bldg-- plus and minus. Much football and field hockey wave waving. Special ed kids need parents who are astute and willing to be proactive, or your kids will be overlooked.
