I love how so many people from different backgrounds all came together to form the best high school there is. Everyone was so kind and accepting to everyone. People could make friends at my school by just laughing at a joke, this would bring people together. Everyone was a knuckle-head but we all loved each other like a family. Everyone has been through something hard and high school was a place that nothing else mattered but your friends. The teachers would help build relationships with your peers and create a relaxing environment for everyone to enjoy. Some of them were really tough but they all loved their students. All in all I really enjoyed my high school. I will miss that place.

I loved every person i met at my high school. Playing softball and volleyball helped me meet some of my best friends. The coaches also helped me so much throughout my whole high school experience. The academics at my school were also very challenging, but ended up helping me in the long run. The teachers were always available for help and always had an answer every time i asked a question. My counselor also helped me on the track for heading off to college. She helped me with scholarships and even deciding what i wanted to major in and where I ended up deciding to apply. Overall, my whole experience was very good and fun because I will never forget all of the memories I made there.
