    Overall Experience: Education wise the school would not be on my five star list, but the experience with events and activities with friends made this high school experience worthwhile. We have great sports teams at the school and the school spirit is amazing.

    Overall Experience: The school itself is nice however the school is extremely divided between the IB/AP students and the college prep students. Some teachers are great while others do not seem to care about their students. The 4 years there was fine but it could have been better.

    Food: Most of their foods are great but I'm sure they can do better.
