I would love to have a school like that around here. What a breath of fresh air.

Sounds like a great school.

Palo Alto's high schools might have a slightly higher dropout rate but still very low. And they have a much higher rate of kids attending college - well over 90% I think. It was 95% when my kids graduated, 80% to four year schools. So I think we should be very proud of our local high schools as well.
