According to Niche, a school's high score indicates that "Students are very happy with their experiences in all aspects including academics, teachers, health, safety, resources, facilities, extracurriculars, sports, and fitness."
Students really seem to love the school. As one current high school senior wrote on Niche, "I think the opportunities are excellent and the school really supports a spirited and fun environment!"
