    This school is life changing! I have gone there for over three years and i have seen so many kids who would've dropped out if not for this school. The teachers are by far the best I've seen at any school! They have a very open and friendly environment which is very comfortable to be in. They provide so much extra help and support mentally and emotionally. These people truly care about their students! I would recommend this school to nearly everyone in the Buchanan county area without a doubt.
