I loved this school, even though I only spent 1 year there, it was the best school year of my life. They have so many opportunities for you and arts classes and they have the best education possible. I would highly recommend this school to anyone thinking of coming here.

Well it's almost the end of the first quarter and I have mixed feelings about this school. On the 1 hand it's nice to have all the electives, on the other it makes for ALOT of homework. We're a magnet family, so the almost 2 hour bus ride is a HUGE downside too. TRUST me...waking your kids up at ...  Read more
