Well this school is pretty good EXCEPT the restrictions they put for the 2010-2011 school year... Oh and it's great that they're building a new cafeteria and enlarging the gym...... the staff is pretty good they help you alot especially on your first day hahaha.... like me..... umm the school is huge !!!!! but you'll get around in about a week they give you about a week to get to know the school which is good. well overall it's pretty good school for the Clusters too.

This comes from a student's first year there (me). it's a pretty good school i really recommend it!!!
