The majority of parents love the small school that allows students to receive the individual attention they need to succeed. Most parents and students stated that the teachers are caring and devoted to their students. Neither parents nor students had any negative comments but would like to see more sports and extra curricular activities available.
The Academic Performance Index increased 42 points to 899. The statewide goal is 800. Parents are thrilled with the API score as well as the API statewide rank of 8.
