This school is a really nice school;especially in academics. At times I feel challenged,which for me is a personal preference.I enjoy the environment most of all. The learning environment is so nurturing. I feel that I am able to learn at a pace that I am comfortable with and get help if I fall behind.If I had the opportunity to choose this school again I would,because no only do I learn I feel as if I can confide in something outside of my home.

my experience has been okay just stressful for couple reasoning. especially in a small town not much to do and you see the same face everyday

My time that I have attended this school I have joined and lead several school and community clubs. The involvement from students and parents could be better but given that this school is in a 75% poverty area it does okay. I have enjoyed the socials clubs have when it is near a break off from school. I would go to this school again because the school is not too big and the teachers do care how the students learn and grow.
