The school teaches to the middle. If you are academically challenged or way above average forget it. The school is all about discipline not academics or athletics. The athletics program is a joke. Save your money and go to a charter school.

A good school for a rounded education with extra-curricular activities, but lacking in scholastic endeavors. Structure is rigid and the principal and staff appear to be extremely resistant to improving academics or opening new programs. School policy is haphazard and suffers from an autocratic leadership

Parents are required to participate 40 hours a year, but there are no meaningful guidelines as to what qualifies and rules are made after the fact. Class size in lower grades is extremely large.

Despite the foregoing, the school is still preferable to the local public schools which have much to be desired. Read less
