    This school has great potential. It would be great if the district would support it 100% like it supports the other schools in the district. The principal of the school is dedicated but clearly in over her head as repeated request for vice principal goes unanswered. The school is a grade 7-12 and it makes no sense that the school is understaffed and in a building that is way to small for the number of students and programs that should be available to the students at a Performing Arts School.

    Great school with dedicated teachers staff and principal. I would highly recommend it. The best year to enter is in the 7th grade where you have the greatest opportunity to be accepted. Must fill out an application in the 6th grade year and also audition. The classroom size is from 12-18.
