I have very few close friends at this school and have a great time in the school band. I wish that the school band had more funding and that we wouldn't have like 17 rats in the middle school building. I would like less discrimination to LGBTQ+ people in this school and to be treated equally. I wish that they would have more food options and more varieties of library books.

The teachers at this school, overall, are some of the nicest people one will ever meet. Most of them care for the students and hep them the best that they can if they are struggling. Some of them, however, are too smart for their own good. They know the material, but they have a hard time teaching the student to where they can understand and perform at their greatest ability. It is a challenge, but I like challenges. They have made me study harder than ever and have prepared me for college to the best of their abilities.
This school is a good school, and is improving every year. The best thing about this school is the size. This school is so small the teachers have more time to slow down and have a little more one on one with the struggling students. My favorite thing about this school is the understanding all the staff has. If a student is having a hard time with school, or even at home, they will go above and beyond to help and ensure that their students succeed.
