Students say the best part of their high school experience is:
- Being able to make memories and participate in all types of things and do all of this while graduating with a 2 year associates college degree.
- Getting the college credits and the push that I needed from the teachers to keep me on the right track.
- The fact that this school is small and everyone gets to know each other. I've gotten really close to many of my teachers and classmates and because of this, I have felt very comfortable and confident while attending this school.
