Our school isn't the best but its way better than any other school I have attended. They teach us individuality and about being different, just being ourselves. The teachers want us to succeed and they try to talk us up even when we do bad on some things. This school is honestly a great school to attend other than a few minor problems every now and then.

The staff only cares if your childs test scores are to their standards. If not they find ways to expell them.

This is a small school with a strong sense of family for its students. My children have attended and received a strong education that has supported them in college with good college grades. The faculty cares for its students, and values morales and differences in people.
