  • the staff is not there to teach our childeren however only to earn money. my son has had trouble all year with the rude staff, and the councler was less than helpful, all of the many times we went to see him. we finally went to another school, because we kept running into problems with teachers being racist.

  • This is the best high school on the westbank. I attended 1998-2001 and the teachers were exceptional and the school overall was great. I would definitely send my children here.
