I would definitely choose this school all over again. Everyone, including students and parents are very active in school lifestyle. There is lots of support at sporting events and plays. Everyone genuinely cares about their education here.

I love how this school constantly has events for students to attend whether it be sporting events or just club events they are always fun. Last week alone we had a glow in the dark dodgeball game to raise money for a charity.
