    I'm a sophomore at this school and I think it's one of the coolest schools in the state. The Academics are good and the teachers are amazing at what they do. Their sense of humor in their teaching can really make your day better. The students are friendly and fun to be with.

    Several of my teachers went above and beyond to work with students and really help them to succeed. I found that teachers were greatly involved as were the principals parents and community. Overall it was a great school helped prepare me for college and taught me about life with teacher interactions and all the extracurricular activities I became involved in. I now hold a college degree from on of the best private schools on the west coast.

    This is the only high school that has a vet science class that will help me in my goal of becoming a vet.

    The school is very welcoming; teachers are energetic and genuinely like students. My daughter has taken many advanced classes and found them very valuable. The school is flexible in scheduling so that students can take more advanced courses if they are ready for them.

    In the case of some students this school merely pushes them through the system and does not attempt to engage them academically. My daughter was told by a teacher that she wasn't smart enought to attend college. (She now has five degrees.) The music and drama departments are exceptional however.
