Honestly, it's not a bad school. There are a lot of good teachers. Some things are executed poorly. The school has a great chemistry department and when it comes to english teachers they are amazing. The band room could be better but it is an amazing environment to be involved in.

It was a good experience but the people there seem to think otherwise. The fine arts programs there are amazing and I had an amazing time working with the teacher and people in it. I enjoy most of the teachers while some can be dry or not the most informative when teaching they still get the point across and I’ve never had a problem with their classes that I’ve taken. The sports programs are good as well even though a lot of times we don’t have the most success we have a lot of fun while playing those sports.
It's OK. Nothing special but not terrible. Couple teachers are bad, couple are really good. Not much bullying, and its usually in mutual fun. Normal teen stuff. You can tell most people who review are either overprotective parents or the students that make noone like them, so take most reviews with a grain of salt.
