Open Quote Where test scores and being prepared for college are a big focus. And, there is still a great cultural experience from band to cirque to study clubs to charity work to sports! I have personally seen my 4 kids go off to be successful in college and life. They have been well prepared from both their challenges and triumphs within this great family based community that includes this great school. Close Quote

Open Quote I love this high school. The teachers AND the students respect diversity: The school fosters acceptance and tolerance of different races, cultures and personalities.
Most of the teachers are very skilled: they encourage and respect student input and critical thinking. In addition, they do not sweat the "small stuff". The teachers here continue to teach their subject material while teachers at other area schools are wasting prescious time dealing with their students' skirts that are a little more than 3 fingers above the knee. This is not to say that there is no discipline: There is, they just pick their battles wisely.
It is great to see that most of the students respect learning and work hard to do well.
In addition, the school offers some incredible opportunities and instruction in performing arts. Close Quote

Open Quote Students are spoiled rotten. Even weapons found at the school have only gotten students a few days of out of school suspension. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
