My overall experience at this school has been a good one. There is a lot to be involved in, and the more involved you are, the more fun you will most likely have. This school is unique because of how involved the students get during spirit week, competitive sporting events, and powderpuff. The school's events adds a lot to student's experience! I would chose this school if I could do it all over because it has given me the high school experience that I have always wanted. In most categories, the school has out done itself!

They need to invest in better Geometry and Algebra 2 teachers, they definitely need to do a better job at equality and handling bullying correctly.
I loved that the community is very small and most of the students get along very well together. There is a lot of support in the school, whether it's athletics or smarts, everyone is there backing eachother up. The classes are pretty small and teachers know most of their students. I would like to see a few more teachers that actually live on the Island, but no school is perfect. Every student has something to give to the community adn their class.
