All the teachers are super nice and supportive! In my three years attending there every teacher I had was patient and caring. For my fellow theater kids the plays and musicals are fun and enjoyable the theatre teacher is amazing. Also, something I will always remember are the pep rallys they were never boring and included everyone.

There is a lot of diversity and school spirit here! The school really supports joining organizations and being college ready. However, better communication to students about deadlines and events should be made. In this school, there are a few teachers that don’t seem to like their job or do their job right, but the majority does their job well and lightens the environment with their care for their students.
I loved the atmosphere. I came from a really small school with 80 kids in my graduating class and even though i moved to a bigger school with more student to teacher ratio i still felt as if i was seen my my teachers. They knew me just as much as my teachers did at my old school. Not to mention the opportunity i had to do extracurricular activities. I have been able to be cheer captain take advanced classes and be in the national honor society. My high school experience has truly been great even amidst the whole pandemic, i have still been able to have a great senior year.
