    I love this school .It is the best scholl any one could be at. The teachers are nice and help you acheive your goals. They will go out of their way to help you with anything you may need help with. If they don't know the answer they will find someone who does.

    This is an excellent school with a family atmosphere. The principal and assist principals respect the students and in turn the students respect them. The teachers are wonderful and so caring. They are always helping the students and the students feel comfortable asking for help.The chorus program is one of the best in the state- most likely the best! The teachers go the extra mile and try to work with the students strengths. What a blessing to have a school like this in our area.
