A top 3 school in the area!! Teachers care about the student and his/her success. Diverse school, but not too diverse, gives just the perfect amount needed to let our young adults learn and go through life experiences. Great culture and learning environment. Keep up the good work!!!!!

I suggest your kids being in AP classes, thats the best route to go in don't worry about fitting in.. I can't count the number of people I already see messing up there lives. Other then that all I have to say is good luck. Many after school activites.
