I went through the High School system and graduated when it was #7 in the state, so it's good to see it jump to #1. Well deserved.

reading some of the earlier comments, they are still very true - say -- limited choice of curriculum. The overall writing program here is extremely weak --no tolerance for special education here and they struggle to know how to run a special education program properly.

I have two children on both ends of the spectrum child who has a learning disability/IEP and another who is a straight A/Hiigh Honors student.
