I have went to this school since my freshman year the faculty and staff are very friendly but some of the students are not that nice. The sports are very good we just recently got a women's wrestling team where the boys in the room were very welcoming to the females. The lunch and breakfast food is okay definitely not the best at times but it is edible. Overall the school is average nothing stands out to me. I enjoy going to this school overall it may not be the best but I'm proud to have teachers that care about you and want you to succeed in life.

I like how the small size of the school provides me with many different learning opportunities. Sadly, it is difficult when trying to make new friends or when wanted to participate in a more obscure activity due to lack of students and funding. I am a major supporter of our school's performing arts programs, but they aren't as generously funded as most of the sports. The people in the school are very nice and understanding, but there isn't enough diversity in my opinion. I believe that my school has trouble supporting minorities such as those in the LGBT community, people of color, and those with disabilities whether they're physical or mental.
There is lots of one-on-one contact at this school, but the management and policies at the school are very harmful to students. The way problems are handled here seems to be making jokes and brushing off the issue. I've talked to many fellow students that are upset that their problems were only laughed at or made fun of when they went to higher-ups for help. I, myself, have experienced being demeaned for my lifestyle when asking for help.
