    In all honesty this is not a good school. AP choices are extremely limited - there are only 7. These are Biology Chemistry Physics AP United States History Spanish English Literature and Calculus. The teaching staff is personable but some (read many) do not know how to prioritize While it is important to develop bonds with the students a teacher should not ignore the progress that they should be making. Instead of going along with the pace that the students should be at teachers often slow down for the 1 or 2 students that can not keep up and should be demoted to a lower class. The most honest thing I can say about this school is that it is mediocre especially compared to the many school districts in the area.

    I moved from this township because of the schools. Its a beautiful place to live but the schools are lacking. If you have any special needs you are labeled and not helped. In 2 years there were 2 new principals and vice principals. No one cared not even the staff - they quit.
