There’s many clubs to choose from such as Robotics, Social Activism,Fccla , Deca, Dance team, National Honors society, Gay-Straight alliance, TSA, Mock Trial, Hi-Q, Multicultural, ASL, etc. Our swim teams, softball team, tennis and soccer teams are pretty good and make it to state often. There is a wide variety of classes to choose from, whether you want to take easy classes or really challenging Ap or Uw classes. The majority of the teachers are involved and helpful, when you ask for it. The school average Gpa, SAT and Ap scores are higher than the state and district averages. The staff and administration are very involved, helpful and actually care about their students. Downsides are, the school is way too overcrowded, causing the school to have like 19 portables and many more to come. There’s not enough parking for juniors and seniors.Overall it’s a really good school, that’s decently diverse and I would say the best high school in the district.

The counselors seem to lack because they only do what's "required" when really, students need guidance for what they might want to do, when, and how they're going to achieve it. Instead, they just want their students out, when they need to be informed about the options and requirements they have/need to meet when it comes to following their unique plan. Teachers need to gear themselves to each and every student. Not letting your mood affect your work-what a professional is. Teachers are a demanding position but there are teachers out there that want us to do well.
Students aren't going to get anywhere. They're careless and ungrateful but so caught up in their lives and think their lives are hard on them. Their teachers are here to help.
It was very easy to get lost if you didn't seek help. But there are many programs there that can help you if you're open and ask! Otherwise, the facilities are fairly new and staff is pretty good! I think they are pretty strict in their rules though. Plus counseling is so hard to get an appointment with.
