    The quality of the academic programs is average. There seems to be a teacher to the middle approach and not high expectation approach. The opportunities for extracurricular activities is excellent. If a student wished to participate they opportunity exist. The schoool seems to lack direction academicly. But it has a save and friendly environment for students.
