This school has gorgeous, new facilities but had a rough start in the leadership department with 3 different principals in the first two years. The administrative issues seem to be ironed out now. I am truly impressed with the quality of teachers and academic assignments that my children receive. The arts programs also seem to be well run. The reason I did not give the school five stars is because of the costs. I thought public education was free in the U.S. The fees at this school are constant: $200 for a student parking pass, $100 for each sport per student, fees for labs, uniforms, yearbooks, school photos, graduation, sports equipment, musical instruments, school supplies, PTO dues, Booster club dues, etc. Additionally, there are non-stop fundraisers. My other main complaint is that there is no bus to bring home students who stay late for sports or extra curricular activities. Taxes are high in this county, so I didn't expect to have to pay for all these things. My 3 kids always attended private school before we moved here, and all the fees were included in the tuition, so it was a shock.
