Our arts program is absolutely spectacular! From band to choir to drama, there are so many things to do for someone like me! I also thoroughly enjoy going to the events that we have; mainly basketball. However, there have been many things that administration has done that has impacted our well-being. Sadly, this school isn't the greatest at addressing mental health issues. They also don't handle conflict too well. They add certain rules in an attempt to avoid the unavoidable, and this just makes us all angrier, and it just makes our lives a little harder than they are.
I truly loved going to school here. The facility was great as well as the faculty. They made sure to support their students, and ensured their academic success. They offered many different afterschool activities for students to be involved in.
You get early opportunities to take dual credit college classes during your junior and senior year with them paying for one class. This helps with being a college student while also being a high school student. The teachers are nice and like to communicate with their students. A complaint I have about this school is that there are not a lot of clubs so it's had to choose with a limited variety.
