What MilFams Say:

This school is average. They do offer advanced classes for those who qualify as well as AVID classes. Class size is average, however some teachers don’t seem to care. The staff and faculty make families feel welcome and communicate regularly with parents. Student will be challenged, but parents need to advocate on their behalf consistently. There is a large community of retired military families with children and there is a military support group for those who wish to use it. However, there is not a lot of student turnover. For parents who are active and involved, this can be a great school. There are sports for students in 7-8th grade, the seasons are 6 weeks long and don’t overlap. There is a band and choir for students in all grades.
