Although my 9th and 10th grade school years weren't the best, the school's academics have been improving. The Admin team has been working to expose students to STEM careers and now offer classes like STEAM honors and Design Thinking to high schoolers. Teachers have also helped students prepare for the ACT so the average ACT score isn't an 18 anymore by explaining the sections of the test in detail and give tips to avoid wasting time.

Something that I would like to see different is for the school to be more funded. Due to the lack of money we are not getting to experience that "high school life" because we don't have any a sports besides soccer, for any event we want or fun things to do our grade is responsible to fundraise money but only allowed 2 food sales a year! We rarely have any field trips, we've been to a few college tours.
This school was alright. There needs to be more sports though, when I was there all we had was soccer and they recently just added volleyball. There are not many clubs as well. However, the teachers are very involved with their students, they care about them and want to see them succeed. It may be small but that's what makes it better, everyone knows everyone, so you're never alone. Unless you like to be alone, I know I did, you can be alone too.
