I liked that the school was small enough to know everyone and have the one on one connection we need as students. However, I would like to see less money spent on new hallway TVs and already new running tracks and more money spent on much needed class room materials.

My four years of high school was pretty average id say. The teachers were all very nice but not outstanding at what they do. Sports here are fun and everyone knows everone. There is very little diversity as most people including teachers here are white. However this is one of the most unorganized schools out of the four i have attended. The sports are unorganized as well as the academics luckily its in a community where people can "spread the word" if things get changed but sometimes that leaves some of the less social people out. Half way through senior year they randomly introduced something called the capstone project and made it a graduation requirement. No one knew what they were doing as well as the teachers and kids that graduated early didnt have to come back and take it. It was one of the sloppiest things ive ever seen. However your chuld will be safe here and most likely find a friend group along with some average acedemics
I enjoyed the small class size because in just a semesters time you can get you to know your teacher well and they can help you individually if needed in class. The teachers are also very involved in their classrooms. It helps that most are really passionate about the subject they teach and it reflects in their lessons. Unfortunately, there is a lack of diversity in the school and very little club participation.
