I have a daughter who is currently a junior and absolutely loves it. The student body appears to be a tight-knit group, atmosphere is positive, athletic dept. is competitive, the teachers are wonderful, and the staff members are very helpful! There's a bonus with the addition of a vocational study.

I have a handicapped child in this school. The experience has been excellent. The handicapped and the typical students benefit from lots of exposure to each other. We have a very broad minded group of students as a result.

Excellent school. Opened in 2003 and it's very state of the art. The teachers are great, principal seems to be everywhere all the time. I don't know when he ever sleeps! The school offers IB, AP, and Advanced classes. Teachers encourage kids to take a strong course load. Help is always avaliable. My children have had a wonderful experience.
