The school shares a building with multiple other schools. There are many good teachers and staff who are great people but not all of them are. School safety there are never around when they are needed. three years ago (2016-2017), the school day ended at 2:00, which was amazing but has since changed to nearly 3:00. Not all of the adults handle things in a mature manner, so unnecessary issues will most likely arise. for most of my time there, I had wished I had gone to a different school and that my time was being wasted.

It Filled with art activities and allows you to be your yourself through any type of art. They plan fun activities and Trips / overnight trips. For seniors our overnight trips and covered with food and good hotels. Some teachers plan very good assignments for the day and makes it fun
What I liked were the teachers and some of my classes. What should change is having more variety in their clubs. I also enjoyed meeting new people that later became close friends.
