    My school is located at the Walton Campus. It is the only school that requires uniforms so it helps prevent gang activity within the school. It offers four AP classes also college now classes. There's someone in charge that deals with internships and scholarships. There are volleyball basketball baseball softball and tennis teams for each gender. Something unique is that my school is bilingual and offers opportunities to perfect more than just one language.

    Without a doubt the only true public bilingual school. Your children like mine will walk out with 2 or more languages and admission to a college or university. I could not be more pleased with this school!
