Community ratings & reviews

    If you don't fit what the assistant principal thinks at the H.S. is the "perfect student" he will not protect you. A lot of bullying and harrassment at this school with no real support from staff.

  • (5 years ago)

    Excellent school-low student to teacher ratio. Good class choices-teachers overall are really good.
