I like how the teachers pushed me to always do my best. They were very supportive and helped me acquire the skills I needed for college. I wish I could go back and do it all again!

I enjoyed the band program and the majority of the teachers there are good at their jobs. I would like to see the school have more focus on more variety in academic classes, especially on art oriented classes and less of a focus on athletic programs.
The school does the best with the resources it is given. It's not the most aesthetically pleasing, but there is enough not to be too distasteful. The majority of the teachers are genuinely teaching because of their passion. It's nearly a community where everyone knows one another.
