This school is alright overall. I strongly dislike the majority of the focus on athletics vs education. I believe sports are important, however education is just as important, maybe even higher. The school gets many technology grants which is great, but I wish they received money, so they didn't have to lay off many teachers. We receive iPads which you would think to be nice and helpful, but in actuality they are useless. I feel bad because it sits at the bottom of my locker, dead and unused. I cannot use them in half my honors classes so there really is no reason to forcing students to have them.

The bullying programs cycle in and out and don't seem to affect change. School security has been increased recently in ways that don't make much sense but due to the sudden prevalence of school shootings nationwide these changes are accepted (despite the extremely low risk of something happening here). With these increases, lockdown drills and drug searches with K9 units happen at least once a year despite the fact that this does not increase school safety and instead takes away from instructional time. The health office and nurse's office seems really great though, and the programs offered are extensive and excellent.
My school is located in rural upstate New York. The teachers and academics are outstanding. I think my teachers prepared me well for what lies ahead. Because we are rural community some of the resources available to us seem slim at times but we have done well with what we have. I wish our community were a little more diverse but location seems to prohibit that.
