After almost 3 years of our child attending this school we have been disappointed by the lack of homework and meaningful projects. We feel there is a low standard for a passing grade. The extracurricular activities are very nice and are lead by dedicated teachers and staff; Leadership (this group does a lot of volunteer work in the community), Lifers (a group dedicated to no drugs/alcohol), and sports (basketball, wrestling, cross country, track and field). Music and band are both available and are great groups to be involved with.

I went to this school for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, and it is a great school. I met a lot of wonderful kids and teachers who help you learn and make friends. Everyone is nice and theres hardly anyone who tried to bring you down in anything you do.
