Cheerleaders ! Are and will always be the best, why? Well because, without cheerleaders, a football team wouldn't be itself. Cheerleaders are supporters, no matter what sport, you need support. And as a cheerleader, I believe we play a very important role in the community of football as well as all other sports. We do not want okay, we want GREAT!
The food is terrible that's coming from a school. Normally public schools don't give out the most healthiest and tasteful kind of food. Sports though, this school takes it's football team very seriously. For last couple years most of our funding essentially went into the football team, and although we were undefeated for a while things began to turn this year. Also in this school unless your taking college level courses from what i heard you aren't really prepared for college, it's more like you get your just thrown into that world.
IBCP program is great if you can make it through the horrible IB MYP experience! Very little teaching and very much testing in 9th and 10th grade (IBMYP)! If you succeed in the IBMYP program than the IBDP will be a breeze! The AVID program is excellent and the non-IB staff really care about the success of their students.
