During the almost 4 years that I have attended this high school has been such an experience. Before, I came from a whole different school district so I feared that I wouldn't be able to get along with others, but I was wrong. I was able to make great amazing friends in this school that I now treasure so much! Not only did I make new friends, I also enjoyed being able to part-take in their extracurricular activities and school events, with how much fun they made it!

My overall experience with this is school is somewhat mixed. I really like the way my school offers many activities and clubs for students to join and the camaraderie one makes with when you are a part of a team. Having these extracurricular activities gives us students choices and helps form social skills. However, the school does not make much effort to aid it's students when it comes to career planning and college readiness. The school counselors do not truly take in consideration the well being of the students and most often have their favorites. This does not make it fair for other students who struggle on their own. In addition, there are many under qualified teachers teaching subjects they do not have the certification for teaching. This make students even more confused when the teacher themselves can not explain or help, especially when the subject is an AP course.
Overall, I feel like this school is good. I am in a program called Early College which is kind of like dual credit. Being allowed to take college courses and potentially graduate with an associates degree is what I love about this school the most. Moving into the new campus was very strange. It is very big, kind of like a mall. Many great extra curricular activities and plenty of opportunities to make your high school years memorable. The staff and administration all all friendly but strict. Maybe because they want every single one of us to succeed. I do enjoy going to this school and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
