We are military and this by far not the worst school our children have attended. It is like any other very small school. There is an advantage to the children who attend. They are not just a face in the crowd. But the down side there are no, or few, classes for your child to switch to if they are having problems. The good news is the teachers work very hard for thier students including after school help. I am a vocal parent and have been over- all happy with the school, but it did seem to take more meetings than was necessarry at times. The administration is always willing to listen. This is a community that does not consider college a priority, but Surrey has worked very hard to provide college minded students with opportunities to help them get there. My only real complaint: the 6pt grade scale.
