    I went to this school for 8th and 9th grade. The kids are welcoming to new students and the teachers are freaking amazing! I enjoyed all of my teachers I had throughout both years. The classes are fun as well as challenging. I had an amazing two years at this school )

    This school is alright. But there is way to much drama here. All the kids think there better then everyone else when there not. If everyone stopped with the drama the time everyone else spends in school would be better. The teachers are nice but some are very judgmental towards certain students. But otherwise I think this school has a very good curriculum and staff.
