    I completely disagree with the statement below except I agree that the curriculum is great. Two of my children attend/have attended there and I found that the teachers try to help all the students and discipline all the students as fairly as possible.

    The curriculem is good but the majority of the teachers are prejudice depending on who the parents are and how much money they have; The rules that are enforced are only enforced for certain students and others are allowed to do or dress however they feel. Athletics are designed for only those students whose parents are a teacher/coach or whose parents belong to the booster club and shell out the money; the coaches go along with that and don't give the talented athletes a chance. Overall it's the most politically run school around. It's all about the money.

    Overall a good learning enviroment for students. I personally do not appreciate the suspension letters sent home after missing 4 days in a semester but I am sure the letters are very helpful to parents of troubled teens so I am understanding.I have had 3 daughters in this school and do not know of anywhere I would rather for them to have gone to school.
