    The teachers don't apply you for anything. I got so sick of the students and staff that I moved back to Norton

    I love working here. The administration is the best I've ever worked with. They are strict and personable; fair and consistent; supportive and caring. They truly care about each and every student who comes through the doors every day of the year.
