The vast majority of the teachers are incredibly knowledgeable in what they teach and have a common goal of teaching students not only the curriculum but valuable life skills too.

Good overall experience, was able to connect with the resources available and further my education at little to no cost. There were programs available to high school students to take college classes and gain college credits while still in highschool.
Teachers are amazing. When struggling they go out of their way to help you out and get you back on track. 10/10 Guidance counselors are wonderful as well. They really do look out for you. However, if something were to change, it would be the class schedule.
