My school experience here has been amazing. I always feel so welcomed by my teachers and I have made many friends. They offer many activities aside from sports such as marching band, media club, anime club, GSA, and more! This school has helped me thrive in a way no other place can.

The is a strong school community. Not only are teachers encouraging students, but students are encouraging and supporting each other. There are also many clubs, activities, and teams to be involved in, so there is always something for everyone.
Most teachers are enthusiastic about teaching and push students to reach their full potential. Students often talk down to teachers and administration because they do not care to learn. Some teachers are biased to students and do not try to accommodate to the students' learning needs and styles. Security guards are great- they do their job, but are also there for students if they need someone to talk to.
