    The high school has shown marked improvement over the last few years and is part of an school corporation that is one of the top school systems in the state academically. The only shortcomings I could see would be with the guidance director but there are efforts to improve this weakness. Outstanding technology and college prep course offerings as well as vocational training matched in few areas in the U.S.

    Surprised by some of these negative reviews I am reading. I attended this school and I most certainly didn't have a popular name associated within the community and I was never a basketball star. I did however receive a good education and became very successful in life following graduation.

    My son and daughter have both been bullied repeatedly at this school. I brought it to the attention of the teachers and staff on 3 separate occasions and then I will see a front page article in the paper about how they have a handle on bullying. I can assure you that is not the case. If you are a basketball star you have it made. Other than that forget it. I will say the special education teachers have gone above and beyond to help my student but not so much the regular teachers. Special education is done in an "inclusion" setup in a regular classroom with regular students. I don't feel this has been a good mix as my student has not done well in this environment and the regular teachers are not equipped to handle his special needs.

    I have a daughter that attends this school and I always find out about eventssuch as band events and teacher meetings a day or two before it happens. there is very little communication between school and parents. For todays working family it makes things very difficult

    I was a student at this school for about two years. And it was quite possibly one of the worst experiences I have ever had. The teachers and staff were just involved in the small town daily drama as the students were. Most everything was based on sports and who you are. Last names are a key at this school. If you know/are related to anyone you're fine. If not there's little to no friendliness. The staff is more apt to help an honor roll student or a sports star rather than those who really need help.

    Unimpressive although a bit under the weather with the lack of dedication. It's a shame that the lack of a motivated student body causes the slack. A few bright minded individuals including teachers keep the school going. Not everyone does their job but most people give it a try. There is a small freedom of choice backed by the support of funds in the form of grants. Maybe it's right maybe it's wrong. I'm not the one to say. There are good times and there are bad times but they are mostly friendly and people don't get anymore than a bit flustered. The grading system is not rigorous enough; this is shown by the schools testing scores. It's not all the teachers fault after constant pounding from parents and students. The school needs a direct form of explanation for teaching procedures while enforcing a greater incentive for actual insight gained.

    The school system is going through a major overhall with a building and renovation project. Not only are these physical improvements taking place numerous changes are being made to improve the curriculum and involve the community in decision making. The future looks bright.
