My son is a Senior, class of 2018. I can’t even begin to put into words the vast difference my youngest son’s high school experience was compared to his two older siblings that attended our neighborhood high school. He went to places he may never have seen like New York and Costa Rica. He was in the school musical. He got amazing experience interning at The Renaissance Hotel where he met some pretty incredible people. He was even invited to come back during the summer breaks from College. The Senior year experience sets them up for the “real world”, no hand holding. 5 stars is actually an understatement to me. Great school!

—Celeste J. G., City High Class of 2018 Alumni Parent

My 1st year of college math was all review for me; thanks to Mr. Harris! The internship I did in 11th grade helped me get a job this summer. The staff still cares for you even after you graduate. The teachers are friendly and helpful. I am a proud alumni.
