Community ratings & reviews

    I recommend this school to every student who has ever been discouraged by teachers or bullied by students or hindered by bad teaching methods. Teachers here will always have time for students no matter how much they cut our budgets. The family like environment is worth it in itself and the freedoms provided to high schoolers here prepares you for the real world more than any class could.
