    When I first came here as a freshmen I was enjoying the school very much! Sadly now that I am going into my senior year here I absolutely hate this school. There are so many pointless rules and the dress code is way to strict. I being a girl cannot wear half my clothes because our new principle says they are "inappropriate" which they are not. I used to get good grades now even though I turn everything in I am a C average student now. I would love this school if the staff would work with the students and parents more.

    This school needs alot of work. Staff are not professional and authority figures are not pleasent to deal with.

    I love this school..both of my kids are students there. The teachers and office staff are wonderful. I feel the school just gets better every year.

    I love all the teachers there. The school is fun and upbeat. There is many extracurricular activities that you can do like the music program sports student council etc. As a freshman i haven't had any problems with the school.

    My daughter who had been a straight A student finished this year with 2 Ds and an F. Numerous attempts to work with the school failed. Poor communication and inexperienced teachers. We are definitely changing schools next year.

    I have numerous problems with this school. There are times when I am confirming my son's absences based on infinite campus it will list him as tardy or absent and when I follow-up the school advises me that was a mistake. Anytime I have to call they make me feel as if I am just another parent. No follow-up no concern and no support. I am assuming most high schools are like this one too many kids.

    It is an amazing school. The teacher's and staff connect with the students and a new and innovative way.
