    wow... great!!
    Especially the logo! Me like it :)


    Critique:
    *background of the navigation bar doesn't look too nice.. possibly remove space between each link
    *@faculty - images don't work (wrong link, change to the .co.cc ?)
    *@prospectus - tables could be improved, different borders.
    *might look better if the [up] button was on the right

    otherwise it's really nice..!!

    Now that is a good website, especially for a school. My school's website is terrible. It used to be plain text!

    Only thing I would say, is really the actual middle website part should stretch right to the bottom instead of stopping and then just having that dark maroon colour stretching the rest of the way down.

    Only problem is the white space at the sides of the background. :)

    Edit:
    @kirtik
    "white spaces at the sides of background"

    You are having a very large resolution or using widescreen?
    i will fix it...

    @Dan...
    Well the pages lack in content...
    that will be fixed when i get more content

    Everybodey thanks for the comments/critiques/

    Widescreen. IMO, people should learn to design for all computers. A good design looks good on all computers. This would be one of those designs if it did. You could just set a background colour as the red from the table borders in the css, and problem solved :)

    Excellent web site. Nice colors, great layout, et c. It seems very functional as well (I really liked the calendar). I would have used more CSS and less tables for the layout, but if it works why worry about it.

    The 404 error mentioned in one of the earlier replies is because of a link error. On the Feedback (and on the Faculty) page, the Home tab in the menu links to index.html rather than index.php. It's easy to miss those things when you are re-working and updating your site.

    The background below the menu column looks funny because it repeats so frequently. You might consider taking that image and modifing it with something like IrfanView (which is a free download; image editor/viewer). It is realatively easy to resize an abstract image like that changing its aspect ratio to make it a tall rectangle rather than a square. Then the image would not have to repeat as often.

    With only ten images in the gallary, you might consider a simpler and faster solution like some available HERE. I never got all of the images to completely load and thought the viewer that you used was a little slow. Whether you change or not, consider resizing the images so that the source jpg files are just the size that you want to display on the screen. They will load faster that way. Many of your images did not have the resolution to display well at full screen, so I would turn that option off and then optimize the size of the jpg's for the size you want displayed on the screen. MHO

    Great site. It looks like you put a considerable amount of work into it. I could only find those few items that you might consider looking at (and they are largely a matter of opinion and personal preference).

    I hope the school appreciates your efforts and talents.

    Very nice. I saw no problems with it, apart from the menu background image.

    I always find school websites hard to suit, but you did a good job

    I think you have shown great creativity and talent in creating this website! Some others have mentioned a few things, so I'll be really nit-picky on the "School Rules and Regulations" (just a couple of minor spelling errors).

    In the last line of the first rule, "thee" should be "the".

    In the ninth rule, beginning "Habitual negligence of schoolwork", again in the last line: "extremecases" should be "extreme cases".

    Well, I'm impressed with your work, I've done worse myself. Your principal obviously made an excellent choice in selecting you for this creation.
