    As I attended all four years of my high school years I must say they do prepare you for college as well as building your network & knowing your community. I don't know about since I've left but there were a handful of good teachers who were willing to help the willing. On the bad note they got a little to involved in a students personal life & almost made it the topic of there conversations. Like there were some good teachers there were bad teachers like in all schools who tend to favor students. I personally would not send my child there unless I looked over my other options.

    Very good college prep school but very left sided. Blanket permission has to be given at the begginning of the school year and if not given assumed to be given.
