I liked being able to play sports and have amazing coaches. I wish to see more students and staff getting involved with school activities. I also wish that there was not a lot of bullying that really needs to change!

I love the small class sizes. The teachers are all amazing and my class feels more like a family. The building is only a few years old, so the classrooms and labs are all state of the art. The community support of the school, students and staff is amazing!
I have not had a very good experience. I was part of a 'trial run' of skipping a class usually required for freshmen and was urged to take the sophomore class instead during my freshman year. I am now a sophomore taking a junior class that I do not feel that I was prepared enough for, and I am suffering because of it.
