I think my daughter has had some vet good instructors. Maybe one or 2 did not really contribute to her academic growth, but overall, she had some strong academic instructions. The band at Minor is awesome and every time we heard them perform, they were great! Really enjoyed going to the all county choir Christmas festival every year. My experience has been good

There are many resources available. There are many computers, laptops, nooks, and other devices that are available. The guidance counselors are horriable! They're never there when you need them and you can never get in touch with them.
