  • Although the school is understaffed, the curriculum is challenging and the teachers help us learn new concepts.
    Counselors are one thing this school is in dire need of. Students need academic guidance and that's a serious problem.

  • I believe this school is a school that is working its way into being an exceptional school. The teachers are very nice and find success in their students success. Furthermore the school's layout is very family oriented and offers a great deal of electives. The school itself is architecturally amazing and THEY JUST GOT SCHOOL COUNSELORS this year (took them long enough)! Personally I dropped out of Heritage high (a brand new, fancy, smancy, school) to go here. Why? Because this school has a lot of potential and so far it is on the right track! :)

  • I am very unsatisfied. It's so hard to get the required courses for my son. They never give him the classes that he needs and wants. VERY UNDERSTAFFED. It's unfortunate because my son wants AP courses because he knows they are beneficial towards his future and regular courses aren't challenging enough for him.

  • This School is very understaffed, they need counselors (They have none) and more office staff, it would help a lot.
