This is an agricultural-focused high school with a complete lack of regard for anyone who does not fit into the school's culture. High school seniors looking to go to university do not receive any assistance from counselors (there was no mention of applications, dates, or discussions of a career/education ...  Read more

I have two kids (9th and 10th graders) at this school. It is SO MUCH BETTER RUN since Principal Coates arrived. She actually enforces the rules, doesn't put up with any monkey business and makes people accountable. The last principal was a lame duck. Mrs. Coates is making a difference, which is probably ...  Read more

The school offers fantastic advanced placement classes taught by fantastic teachers. Great school for very smart students.. Safe school with little peer pressure due to school size and makeup.

If you are willing to ignor any instructor misconduct this is the place for your student. Principal will side with instructor without following up "completely" with students problem. Even when it is an "A" student that takes Advanced classes and never been in trouble.

This is a fabulous school! The learning environment is excellent, and no, school is not a place for toys, it is a place for learning. There is a group for everyone to join, plenty of clubs, no matter where your interest lies. You make your high school experience what you want it to be. If you want ...  Read more

School here is very good. Students are well-behaved. There is good discipline and order. Ms. Honeycutt treats people decently: students and teachers. The negative reviews appear to be rants from disenchanted students and parents: a small, small % of the total opinions and evaluations of the school ...  Read more
