The ratings for a "merchant review" aren't quite right for a school, are they? quality is good, service is excellent (school and staff love what they're doing, such a refreshing change) and value - well, its a charter school, part of the public system, so its free! This high school is small, friendly, respectful of the kids, safe and my son, after a long and winding road from school to school, loves it. For any parent who is concerned that a large high school may not be the best fit for a kid. For any student who feels invisible. The academic choices are fewer, as one would expect with a school that has fewer than 100 students, but hey, Bill and Melinda Gates have put big money into the "small high school movement" so you may want to check out one of the smallest and for this particular family, the best fit. Choosing a high school is a very individual thing. Don't overlook Watershed when you're looking around. Don't assume that the school where all your friends are going is the best fit.
