    This is an excellent school. The entire staff takes the time to help each student and always has their best interest at heart. Everyone is supportive and unacceptable behavior is dealt with swiftly. The students learn how to effectively handle their problems and they are rewarded for good behavior. The best part is the students are required to wear uniforms. That policy alone dissolves a lot of unnecessary probles. I think every school in the state should be modeled after this one. Cheers to principal and the rest of the staff for truly caring about the students.
