It has a small school and a small town feel. The community is involved and supportive. There isn’t the normal cliches you see in other high schools. Everybody has known each other for years, it feels more like a family. The opportunities while more limited in choices are more open in acceptance. You have more of a chance to get into a club or onto a team that in other larger schools. There are great teachers and administrators to help guide you through your high school experience as well.

It's a small school so I know just about everyone there. Classrooms are small so teachers are always able to help everyone!
The school has very good teachers and staff that are knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. However, there are few classes offered to challenge my education, and I ended up having to take courses through running start to get a challenge. I would like to see more and harder courses for future classes.
