High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The code of conduct at this school is strong and codes are enforced but the enforcers are not oppressors rather they act as guides for the students.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: I cannot complain. The school is great, the staff is great. The students, however great, can be off putting at times to other students (difference in financial status).

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: We got a new principal and he does not play. We have drug dogs sniff out the school every couple of months. 1st time a lot got busted, 2nd time around very few were dumb enough to bring drugs to school.
