Very strong teachers especially in core subjects. The faculty has been very stable for many years providing continuity to the school's programs. Very strong graduation rate. The school has creatively employed the internet to provide a variety of classes that the school could not provide because of its size. Classes include languages (French Japanese etc) advanced math etc. The internet has also given students the ability to catch up when they have faltered. There is very strong support from the community as much of the social life of the community revolves around the schools strong athletic program.
