  • This school has many qualities about it that i like. the teachers are way above qualified. The mood is friendly and i can't think of a better place to send your kid. It has the right amount of people and staff. THis school is fantastic. As a sophomore at this school i think i have an idea of this schools future. THis school will be the idea school for years to come. All of the programs like band, softball, and other clubs like that are getting everything they need. Shannon is exceptional and everyone needs to take time and thank our staff.
