They only seem to care about getting money. Student safety is never a concern for them.In the athletics department they only care about the football team.All of the other sports are left to dry.A lot of the facility does not care about the students learning,they are only concerned with there pay check.The food there is almost inedible, lots of kids go hungry because they refuse to eat the slop they are being fed.

I enjoy being apart of Panther Nation, our school spirit and advanced varsity athletics make the school years go by fast. I would like to see more academic improvements.
So far my senior year has been one to remember because of this sad tragedy of the pandemic going on but, the time I had a school was okay. Our school really needs to crack down on bullying just like they do phones.
