Good news


Great community where my daughter feels welcome. I'm a parent (of an upcoming sophomore) and my first impressions after this past year was that this is a phenomenal school. So far so good.
Michel Harry
I love the teachers attention to every student as well as staff members. They push you outside your comfort zone and let you try new things if you're willing to. They have a really strong emphasis on making sure their students understand the materials.
Yuri Utida
Rules and regulations are taken seriously here. That is exactly what my son needed. He was acting out and doing bad in school until he started here. It was an adjustment at first, but now i am happy to see him doing better and applying himself.
