The safety at our school is great! I always feel safe. We practice fire drills, tornado drills and drills if someone were to enter the building that shouldn't be. The school nurse is rude and I feel she hates her job. She never wants to be around the students. We do have a health program for our food but it's not the best.

Our student involvement is very high. Our football team this year went to sectionals for the first time in 4 years. Our baseball team has always been pretty good and they go far in playoffs. Track and field we always have 4-5 kids make it down to state. Softball made it to sectionals last year for the first time in 3 years. Also, our girls basketball team made it down to state last year and took third. Our fan support is always good for football, volleyball, basketball(girls and guys), and is alright for every other sport. Our athletic facilities aren't the best. We only have one gym so it is hard to practice when there are multiple sports going on. I would like to have a field house with a weight room so that everyone can use it and then we will also have the gym.
I love the teachers at my school but there are some who don't necessarily get along with the students. Otherwise, our teachers are in their classrooms most of the time and are always willing to help us student. They care about us and our opinion. Most of the teachers are creative with their teaching style and get the students involved and other teachers just lecture and bore us. Most of our teachers have a great idea about what they are teaching and some of them don't have the best idea. Our teachers have pretty good communication skills they will respond to our emails within 24 hours and they treat us like adults so we have to go see them if we miss a day.
