Very good school, teachers and administrator are interested in student learning. Has many clubs and sport teams that offer student different activities to get involved in the school and support it. They try their best to get you ready for college and make sure that your transition into college goes as smooth as possible.

I really like the teachers that I have, they are always taking care of us and how we're doing in all our classes. They are so nice, as long you're showing that you do care about getting a good score and work during class and if you're not, they'll convince you to try and they are always there when you need them. Also, whatever the dude or the questions you come with the always know what to say and if they don't they won't stop until they explain you and they are really sure you're learning what you're suppose to learn. They have very good skills and an amazing knowledge of what they're teaching.
The teachers at the Humanities and Leadership Development all develop a type of connection with the students. They're each individually very approachable and dedicate their time greatly for those who need it. They care about each students grades to a certain extent, meaning those who care about the work they're handing in and those who don't care about not handing in their work in order to get good grades. But apart from that, the teachers are very good staff members and I personally am glad about the ones I've had over the last four years.
