    Overall Experience: If i could go back i would absolutely choose this school again. i have had the most amazing experience. The people are so open and welcoming and it is very easy to get along with everyone. It really feels like a family and the pride and spirit the students have for the school is amazing. The school keeps traditions unlike other schools, for it is the oldest school in the district.

    Health & Safety: I have never seen bullying or any other personal safety issues in the halls or classroom of this school. Not only are the students considerate of one another, the staff and building in general is very safe and helpful; always talking about preventing issues.
