I really like everything about it. The teachers make an extra effort to help their students and they always are there to help students grow as individuals. The sports and clubs offered are wonderful, if a club is not offered they try to find a way to make it so that club is an option for students. There isn't really much that I do not like about this school, and it makes everyone feel welcome.
I say that it is okay because there are too many things going on and not enough people to run it. There are also a lot of kids stressed out because they are good at, or interested in, everything. This makes it hard just to choose a few clubs or sports. The teachers are also running themselves thin with all the clubs that the school makes them do. This makes it hard for them to be available when students need them. Often when I am talking to a teach I feel rushed because they always seem like they have somewhere else they would rather be.
