I would say in general, this school has a lot of room for improvement. For one, the administration, while it's not completely horrible, there are some complaints that have been ignored, and problems that need to be faced have not been. I would say the school is diverse enough, it does have more of a black population, but there are some mixes in the student body. The teachers are also mixed, as some are completely respected, and other having a lot of complaints under their belt. College readiness needs to be better also, not exactly from the counselors, but more of a lack of seeking information. From issues like these, the school spirit can suffer a little. Apparently, we aren't a modern institution, like some other schools in Guilford County, but there are going to be some changes to our quality in the soon future, so I believe that is something to look forward to.

Very friendly staff, teachers were very engaged and cared about their students. The school is modern and is up to date. The library houses thousands of books and the staff In the library are very friendly and helpful. The staff are very welcoming to current and alumni students. The school events are well organized and well monitored. Sporting events are very engaging and the school has many boosters providing equipment for the sports teams.
My skills wasn’t ready for the environment I was in. I was unsure of myself, battling personal insecurities, and miserable with myself. Sports was my outlet. I was fortunate enough to receive a full scholarship to the university of Wingate for athletics. Great people, great learning environment, but lacks culture.
