My friends may not like it, but I loves this school. It IS a great school and I love being there. I have many great teachers who taught me a lot of things, including pieces of lessons in life.

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.
