On Sports & Fitness: Sports are extra-curricular, and if a student is not maintaining the GPA, there needs to be a balance! Fees are high also, especially since there is often no bus to away games. That is where the team is built, on the bus rides to and from the games, not in different parent/student cars!!

On Academics: Great teachers who love their jobs. I'm sure there are trade type classes, but I never was able to attend. It would have been fun to have the opportunity.

Parent

On Extracurriculars: Due to many clubs taking class periods, it was hard to be involved. Sports are very specific, in other words you should have been playing the specific sport since you were a toddler to succeed.

On Administration & Policies: Principal is always present, at all the after-school activities. The students really look up to and admire him.
