    Administration & Policies: The attendance policy is absurd. A sick student with a doctor's note is not an excused absence but bring your child to work day and religious reasons are. Administration appears afraid to take on topic of Opioid epidemic in the state.

    Teachers: the teachers demonstrate care for the students beyond instruction.

    Overall Experience: great academic school. parents are involved and invested. I do not care for their attendance policies. A sick child who still maintains work and good grades is considered truant. School administrators appear afraid to take on issues like the heroin epidemic aside from instituting random drug testing policy. Emails suggesting assemblies on the opioid epidemic went unanswered.

    Health & Safety: recently instituted random drug testing to discourage drug use.
