Both of our sons are currently going to this school. Our first experience was with the middle school. The students schedule is too complicated for even the students to figure out each day of the week is completely different from any other day but dont worry your student wont forget to bring the right book to class because they don't have any. That's right the entire middle school program has no text books, none. The teachers say it's so they can be more up to date and not be tied to a book, understood. But this is not preparing them for high school where they do have text books. The middle school also had no limits for how late you can hand in homework or how long it takes you to take a test. You can come in the next day and finish your test if you dont know what's on it today. How nice, sadly high school and the rest of their lives are not like that. It doesnt get any better when they get to high school. My sons math teacher wont answer his questions in class because that's not how it works now. The students at the table are supposed to figure it out then teach the others. New math hey? Look at their NECAP scores. Below average on nearly everything.
Stunningly good high school. I've had two children attend and can't begin to say enough about the opportunities they've had available to them. Top of the line teachers (on a first name basis), extremely involved principal, awesome academics, wood/metal/mechanics shops, incredible art program, gorgeous new theater, endless sports opportunities in one of the top programs in the state, etc., etc. For a high school with only about 600 kids in grades 9-12, the variety and quality of this place is simply amazing. Don't currently offer AP certified courses (because of a philosophical conflict with the academic limitations it presents) but should initiate them soon to maximize opportunities to enter top colleges, many of which tend to overemphasize the importance of AP accreditation. Only drawback I've seen is a weakness in the guidance office but this is being improved. All in all, a fantastic school.
amazing teachers and kids, great at sports, arts and everything, great class rooms and huge gym, library, auditorium, and cafeteria.
Amazingly good at the arts and sports. Responsive to parents about academics.
