    excellent teaching staff. many extracurricular activities to choose from The activities are or such great variety that any student should be ablt to enjoy one or more. The thing lacking is the ability to steer students toward better social behavior. Dress codes and stricter supervision on appropriate conduct on school property would make a great difference. This also includes themes picked for socials and balls and movies seen books read. They could greatly increase the opportunities to teach and inspire the students toward possitive behavior and thought patterns. We love the school overall and are very pleased to have our child atttend.

    Parent involvement is not encouraged. Make Your Day Program is disliked by students most consider it a 'joke'. Staff support of substitute teachers is often non-existant. Principal is not very observant and very much out of touch with what's happening in the school.
