Overall, this school is incredibly wonderful. I have tons of extracurricular activities due to the options the school has provided. Although the drama/theatre program is amazing, we are limited to a small black box-style theatre. However, that doesn’t stop the amazing teacher from taking us on trips across the world. For example, my Junior year, the class traveled to Moscow, Russia to perform “Taming of the Shrew” at a Shakespeare Festival. The other extra curricular activities like Leadership are wonderful. Being in Leadership, I had tons of fun helping the school get into more spirit and encouraging academic honesty and pride for all the students.

I enjoyed the attitude and flexibility the teachers/physical education directors have to helping, answering questions and providing resources to the best of their ability in an honest and sincere way. However this is not the case for administration, counselors and staff who I did no consider to be involved with the students at all. The administration seemed to just be fulfilling their job to the bare minimum which is mostly the attitude on campus. Just do the bare minimum. The campus is also swept and mopped every once in a blue moon so if you don't mind walking over days old rotten food, being stuck in stinky classrooms with the AC cranked all the way up then welcome.
I was only there for my senior year but I had a great experience. I did all the senior festivities: Prom, football games, senior dinner dance, and grad trip. The school offers great teachers and because the class sizes are small you really get to know them on a more one to one level. They also had a large variety of clubs and sports to join. Also the school is very roomy and there's a lot of school spirit. The only thing I could criticize is the lack of class options. There was no AP chemistry course available the year I went but I think the issue was a shortage of teachers. Other than that I had a wonderful time at this school and made great friends.
