  • (8 years ago)

    Good academic program. Most teachers are involved above and beyond to help students be successful. Abundance of music art sports activities especially sports like basketball football cheerleading. Great band program with various sections (marching band concert band jazz band etc.) Big involvement in community activities. Small town feeling.Some problems with fighting in certain peer groups.
