    This school is a really good school. The teaching level is very good and the teachers themselves are friendly and willing to give extra help. I enjoyed going there. There are many programs and extra curricular activities to be in. The school provides a very good studying environment and warm atmosphere.

    I was a fellow student in this school and i have to say it is one of the worst. The kids are mean and the teachers can be really cruel.

    The school is great. It has the best choral music program I have ever seen in a school middle or high school. The chorus teacher is the most outstanding teacher I have ever meet. He has created so many great progams for the students.

    Great School if your child is already where he or she needs to be but if your child needs extra help- good luck getting it - the response from the administration tends to be - if your child needs help - go get it for him somewhere then everything will be fine.
