Lost my step daughter's transcripts for 2 weeks! Actually asked me "are you sure she graduated from here?". Upon showing them the diploma, they were like, "That doesn't help us." The guidance counselors will not call me back concerning scheduling conflicts with my son. Apparently they have no clue. ...  Read more

While the school is beautiful and has a good arts program, I have had issues with our now sophomore. There are teachers who even the guidance counselors know want to see the kids fail, which I find appalling. Our experience with athletics via the football team has been horrible. I haven't figure out ...  Read more

Bad not Great material. Some of the teachers are amazing and others are rude and substandard. My kids are going to private school now.

It is really not that bad of a school. People sit on this and complain because they have nothing better to do. This school has come a long way from where it started and it is only going to get better

This school has top SAT and ACT scores as well as good teachers. There are a number of students not motivated to become anything nor any life goals and cause trouble for the 90% that do and take up a lot of admin time to deal with. Athletes at ALL schools placed on a pedistal so this complaint is universal. ...  Read more

We have had terrible experiences with this school. The teachers seem to care, although they lack the authority to control their classes. My daughter an A student in honors classes was discouraged from attending after she was ill and missed 6 weeks. On a regular basis I picked up and returned her work, ...  Read more
