If I had it to do all over again, my child would not set foot in this building.

Love this school. Very well organized, keeps parents very well informed with weekly newsletters and phone calls. Many workshops to assist parents in helping their children plan their academic future. The Deans of every House are very hands off and accessible and the teachers are engaged and communicate and offer tutorials and take the time to contact parents know where they see the need for additional help.

I have found excellent teachers and some really poor ones. In particular, one particular language department head displayed some pretty questionable ethics in the past. The school principal at the time (no longer there) whose name is actually mentioned in some of the reviews, circled the wagons and ran defense for her when she was clearly lying and covering up her poor judgment and behavior. The good teachers often don't stay and the bad ones hang on to their lifeboat/paycheck. Teacher accountability has always been a problem there. Having said that, this is probably one of the better high schools in the district.
