I'm looking to start my children in this school and I have spoken to teachers and staff already. They seem to be very professional. The school also has English and computer classes for parents. These classes help to get the parents more involved with their children's academic experience.

I have lived in this community for more than 10 years and am disgusted by the stereotypical mural they just placed in the wall. Warriors huh? Raise the schools ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
