Overall, a great and ever improving school. Every year the school board makes changes and improvements that enhance the high school experience. I've established bonds and relationships that cannot be severed. I've learned from teachers who actually care about us students. I learn life lessons and tools fnot included in the curriculum.

Freshman year you are separated from the upperclassman and are treated like babies. It's a completely different experience once you become a sophomore. Also, school officials are very homophobic and controlling.
I like and appreciate the interaction students receive from most teachers and the academic program, and also teachers, provide students with knowledge they wouldn't have received at any other insitute.
