    The school is nice and they have a nice auditorium. The problem is the students. They are rude stuck-up and just plain mean. I transferred after my first few months. I'm sorry to anyone who goes there and is not like that. I'm not talking about you.

    I have no complaints about the school and the staff is wonderful. I had two kids go to this school and they loved it. The staff worked with my kids during so serious medical problems and death of close friends. s
