    This is a great school with great teachers wonderful activities and highly competitive sports teams. I have had two children graduate and go on to highly competitive colleges. It consistently has National Merit Scholars All State Band and Chorus students. The school's athletic department has been voted the best in the state more times than any other school for success and sportsmanship.

    This school is a great school. They offer a wide variety of courses like landscaping computer courses cooking classes child development and many others. The sports programs are also wonderful with dedicated coaches and facilities including a weight room. There are also a variety of art and music programs such as 3 different choirs jazz band symphonic band and music theory among others. The teachers get involved and the quality of instruction and teaching is great. This is truly a great school.
