I must be fair with this high school, so let me start by listing the pros; the band program, it’s 15 mins from the coast, and for some strange reason they have an aquarium. The aquarium is the only reason this school has three stars instead of one because it makes up for the cons. These cons are listed from greatest to least; near zero student enjoyment, administration, facilities, school pride/branding, athletics, ignorance, specific location, and teachers and curriculum. Students will NOT enjoy their time here, referrals are handed out for even attempting to have fun and activities held by a crooked ASB led by a stern and unpleasant activities director are sure to bring out the worst experience for high school. This school may seem to be successful at athletics, but if you look at the records, they’ll tell you that none of the teams have passed division three and they repeatedly play poor teams. Don’t get me started on the football team.

Amazing school not very good at football but all other sports dominate. Good location and the town is a little small but there is so much around the town. Good kids and very smart, higher academics than competing high school in town. The science department is so good, by far the best of the best, The math department is terrible and continues to struggle but lots of great math tutors around. The English department is also good. The school is best known for amazing cheer and band. Even with rival schools lots of good friends made, and also very intense and fun rival games. Some kids can take it to far, but usually pretty Mello.
It's a great school that has a zero-tolerance policy with bullying! Although my main complaint is that kids with sometimes illegal substances and whatnot are allowed to walk free without being reported to the police, but kids playing computer games that are not allowed can give them all-day alternate classroom. This is stupid in my opinion and needs to be fixed!
