As a student athlete I have seen the effect of team life on students. Some respond very well and rise to the occasion by doing better in their academics, others fall behind and are only part of the team because they are good athletes, not good students. The coaches at the school are high pressure coaches, that need to be monitored more closely and reigned in more often. The sports teams are the highest income for the school, so other clubs and organizations seem to get left out of funding or sponsor ships from the community, due to the sports teams dominating. I have had a good experience at this school because I have always made sure I choose wisely and continue to push myself beyond what is just expected of a student here. We have great English teachers that make learning fun, and our History teachers do the same. I wish all the students could have a good high school experience as I have had.
