The overall experience of the school is pretty good. The principal, Mr. Couey really cares about his students and the effect reverberates throughout the school. The students and teachers really care about helping each other learn, and there is always a goal of becoming better each day. While the clubs and sports do lack participation at times, everyone who is involved gives their heart and soul on a regular basis.

I hated this school from the start. The bathroom's were terribly smelling, and some parts of the school had no cameras, and that hallway with no cameras smelled straight up like weed. Some of the teacher's are amazing, that was about two teachers. One teacher got mad at the student's, told us we sucked, and she just started crying after that. Althought administration DID fire the teacher after that episode, but she just told us it was our fault that she got fired and we sucked. I had one advanced class in literature, and the teacher taught us nothing. Literally just let us do these ABC books, I mean COME ON ABC books for advanced students? I actually wanted to learn, and that teacher failed me. I actually want to call out on a teacher, but I won't. She also did nothing to teach us, she just sat on her fat butt, and had us on a computer program some of the students didn't even know how to use. The lunch ladys, librarians, ect. were very nice and helpful.
This school was too small and spread its resources too thin. The only thing they seemed to care about was football, leading other programs to suffer financially. This school didn't offer as many opportunities as other schools in the area. There weren't as many AP classes, it didn't help me prepare for college, and the facilities themselves weren't fantastic. The faculty was lacking in teachers that truly cared or had the education to care.
