Badger is a great place to be, academically speaking. However, this school also has 1,400 people, meaning that it's very easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle. There are many opportunities, but nobody will ever make you get involved; You must do it yourself. As for friends, it's very easy to make acquaintances with 1,399 other people around you, but it's difficult to ignore the cliques and find yourself. Overall, it's a great academic school, but a very high-school-drama-movie environment.

There's so much to choose from! Every interest (or 99% of them at least) has some sort of club or group. Most clubs hold many events throughout the year and they always have a great student-teacher-parent turnout. Each extra-curricular is different, and they all support each other!

There's always an opportunity to get involved.
Great opportunities to do a variety of activities! I school choiced to go to Badger from a smaller district in the area. Love the Culinary program. Most of the teachers are friendly and fair. Outstanding administration.
