On Teachers: Overall the teachers are great. A few were outstanding. One of my sons had serious issues with one which caused problems, but overall, they were great. I think that teacher is gone now, anyway. I heard from my son's counselor that he wasn't the only one who had problems with that teacher, so it's probably for the best that he's gone.

On Overall Experience: I would chose this school again because of the academics and the variety of electives available. I also like that the school is diverse. Both of my sons made a couple of mistakes in selecting courses their junior year, so if I could go back and change that, I would. I am very glad that my younger son got to go on a trip to Japan with his Japanese class and I'm especially grateful that this opportunity came to him (mostly) free of charge! It was not paid for by the school, but by the hosting organization in Japan, and it was a wonderful experience for him.

On Academics: Many course selections available in this school. My sons took French, Japanese, Video Production, Printmaking, Physics, Calculus, History through Film, Web Design, Animal Science, among other things, as well as all the usual core classes. Most of the teachers were great. Workload was reasonable (usually) except that my son made the mistake of taking 5 AP classes his junior year and that was too much. He did not do well. I did not realize what he had gotten into and someone probably should have stepped in and said 'no' to that.

On Resources & Facilities: The building is old but in good condition. There is an emphasis on academics and the arts, so there are lots of college prep and AP classes available. I think parent involvement is probably average. The technology is pretty good, maybe could be better, but that's mostly probably due to budget cuts over the last few years. Busing is a massive undertaking for the county and this past year the bus came so early and was so unreliable that my son only rode it a few times, since I work close to the school and I could usually drive him.

Parent

On Sports & Fitness: Neither of my sons were interested in sports so I know very little about this area. It's not really a big deal at this school anyway.
