Academics wise, the school performs very well. Also, the majority of the teachers I had were good too and treated everyone with respect.

I feel like sometimes this can be a bad thing because then you're only surrounded by the same viewpoints, but the student population at the school is probably 90% or more people with Caucasian race. Sometimes this plays a role in the viewpoint that a kid might develop while surrounded by so many people from the same situation.

It's not that the sports teams are bad, it's just that you can tell which ones are prioritized highest on the list. For example, the football teams generally have the first pick to when and where they get to practice. This may be due to the fact that they attract the most viewers and money, but some of that is also from the band, as 1/4 of the stands are the band and parents of the band.

I think the variety of classes that there are to offer is impressive and enough to fill the needs of every student.
