The curriculum is pretty simple, it's not that challenging for any students. The students are a bit disrespectful towards the teachers and often disrupt the class. The teachers usually leave it alone, so the issues are never addressed. They should also address more controversial topics.

I came to American History to get a better education compared to what I was getting at my old school. Academically, the school is great. But, it lacks in almost all other areas. The building isn't the best, the food could be better, and there really isn't any school spirit. Our guidance team is very helpful and hands on and we recently got a new principal who in interacts with the students daily.
The environmental was a safe one. There is never any bullying like other high schools.Everyone is treated with respect.They have prepared us for college.As years go on...college acceptances rate have been in the 90%.Just class of 2K17 have over 90% of future plans after high school,whether it's college,trade school,work or the army.
