I have had two children graduate from this school and both had a fantastic education. Both, they each are now engineers, one is a mechanical engineer, the other is aeronautical engineer. This school provides many activities after school to keep the kids busy. I highly recommend.

Good area and great for a "basic education", but definitely lacking in science and technology. A very artsy school not for the future engineer or geologist, certainly great for any aspiring accountant or businessman.

My daughter currently attends this school, and she couldn't be happier. The school aims a lot on the arts. Keeping students busy after school with this prevents them toward drug abuse. many extracurricular activities and test scores are above average.

Teachers are innovative and use technology as in chat room style homework assignments; kids really respond well to this. Teachers are very involved and motivated. Guidance counselors try to get to know the kids as individuals. Good combination of academics and extra curricular.
