This school is so small! I'm related to 50% of the people there. My mother went there over 20 years ago, and ever since then, I've had 3 other Aunt and Uncles that have gone there. It has changed a lot frommy mother's perspective. The Administration is much less strict. They seem to focus more on sports than acedimics, but hey, mostly everyone that graduates get a scholorship in sports...

This is a very gegregated school district and the policies that are in place here have nothing to do with the academics.
