I love my school! They provide us many opportunities to get involved, which is special considering the relatively small student body (1,200 students). This size school allows us to become close with our teachers and administrators.

For academics and college prep, this is an excellent school. I am not stressed at all for college applications because of all the help and resources provided. The school takes college very seriously and encourages students to prepare as early as freshman year. For the overall experience so far and student life, I have always had a supporting friend group with me even though it changes a lot. People in this community are fun and take life seriously. What I love about this school is that people are so open-minded and can have fun but still care about their school performance. The teachers are also amazing. I love all of my teachers as they have funny kind personalities and genuinely care about the students individually. Shout out to Mr. Tacsik and Mrs. Kadonaga. I’m sure my final year as a senior this year will be the best experience a senior could have.
Small town community makes everyone friends, culture and school spirit are off the charts! Has many specialized programs and opportunities for a small school.
