    I like this school but it is lacking in after school activities for students and many students don't participate in the after-school activities that we do have. Maybe a bit more advertising of the the clubs won't hurt. A lot of smart people facilities are swell but no excitement overall.

    There isnt really any clubs after school and I think that we should have more sports.

  • (10 years ago)

    Excelent Academics but falls way short on extra curricular activities. Have teachers coaching sports that they appear to know little or nothing about. Very demoralizing for athletes. After school functions appear to be out of touch with students.
