All the over sports do especially well in varsity, junior varsity, and freshmen divisions.

The teachers don’t prepare you for what’s waiting outside of the classroom, the amount of work assigned compared to the actual rigor of the courses is unreasonable. Unless you’re taking mostly AP and honors classes, you don’t do anything in class. The sports teams are over hyped and over rated, the coaches vary from borderline abusive to extremely laid back and almost none of them produce any wins. The other main extra curriculars include the drama club and the band which are both very time demanding leaving little to no time to be too serious about anything else. The overall vibe at the school from the students isn’t good.
I greatly appreciate all of the opportunities there are to become involved at school. There are various clubs and sports, but overall, there is something for everyone. You can focus on music through band or chorus, volunteer with Key Club, apply to the Honor Societies, or even perform with the Dance Team.
The teachers are motivating and take pride in their students and education. There is always someone ready to listen, or stay after for extra help. One of my favorite parts about my school is the guidance department. Everyone is spectacular and very accommodating. Whenever I have doubts about my class choices or need advice when narrowing my college choices, I know I can place my trust in them.
