    Teachers: I was never really overwhelmed by the teachers with a few exceptions. The ones I thought were very good have since retired.

    Overall Experience: I don't think this school is as great as some people think it is. The guidance counselors change every year for the students. How will they get to know a student in a year. It took my daughter's guidance counselor a full semester to address her by name.

    Academics: if you are in all AP and honors classes then you might be OK but even some of these do not live up to and honors level class and do not help prepare these students for college level work
