I would have to agree that sports is what make the school desirable but not so much the school as a whole. The teacher quality is decent and there are still a few who are not just working for a paycheck. But I do feel that the teachers do not have enough parent involvement and there are some teachers or staff members who still have the mind set of the 50's and 60"s as far as racial remarks are concerned.

The school academics are good but there is no funding in the drama department. All the money is poured into the sports programs. The principal didn't give one cent to the middle school's last production because he claimed the school had ' No money'. They had the director write the show herself! Yet if the sport teams need something they get it with no problems. The chorus also could use more funding.
There academic programs are so so. That's the only thing they have going for them. They do support or have any availability in the arts or in music. All they have are sports and unfortunately they invest all there money into a bad team. They have no parent involvement.
