My daughter went to this school and is now in her first year at NAU in Flagstaff. This school has great AP classes and great teachers. She was very happy at this school and had no complaints.

My daughter has been going there for 2 years so far and they staff changes are tremendous. They have teachers who are not concerned with the kids success, and I have recently had a teacher bully my child. I do not feel they take active parents seriously, nor do they like parents calling to report problems or ask about a solution to something that has happened. Teachers seem to only stay here long enough to get hired at a better school. Superintendent has changed every year for the last 3 years, as well.

Dr. Richard was Principal from 2013-2015 and really made some huge improvements. Test scores went up and he put some great programs in place. The school took a dip the year that he left because the lady that took over didn't know what she was doing and she only liked smart white kids., But now the new Principal who just took over is making it good again.

This school is beyond amazing. We have a great atmosphere and the teachers and students are very engaged in the academics! I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. This school is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me!

This is easily the best HS to choose from in the San Tan Valley area. Since the new principal and admin took over last year, things improved significantly. They have great academics and programs for kids who are failing and they are building good sports programs too. Yes the student population has increased since word has gotten out about how much the school has improved, but it is nothing that is out of control. I was concerned about rumors of overcrowding but took the principal, Dr. Richard, up on his offer to visit the school. Everything is fine, plenty of time for kids to eat lunch, plenty of room in classrooms, and many great teachers and engaged students from what I saw. I am pleased with this school!
