My experience from elementary through highschool has overall been amazing! The staff involvement with their students is what I cherished most, and they did a great job with that! I wouldn't want to attend anywhere else.

I love how inclusive everyone is! The teachers really care about you and want to to be successful in life. They always push you to be better academically and socially. The student life is very welcoming and happy.
I would like to see a change in the emphasis on funding. While very successful programs should keep funding (FFA), less successful overfunded programs should not (football).
