    This school is a good small school if you want to know almost everyone in the school.. the teachers are all very well organized i am a past student and enjoyed going here. there were quite a few classes that were not in the ordinary but i really enjoyed going here.. i would choose this school over others in the area.

    The Teachers teach strait out of the books. Ive got one teacher that dont even know how to do what she is teaching and even told us she dont. The only good thing in this school is the older teachers the ones that dont need a book to teach. The ones that play by the respect rules and plays it both ways. To bad that they will soon be gone. Im glad im graduating this year I fear for our school system.

    Small school. Good sense of community. It doesn't offer the variety of classes a bigger school can.
