    The academics of this school are of high quality and parents are always involved in as much as possible. My onlu negative view is the english program. This school only offers one 'road' for students for english. There are no options like you would see in other schools. The music program is one of the best in the state. The marching band has always placed first with the exception of a couple times in the last 15 years. Highly recommended school.
