The school is average, it has two great academies, Video Production and Web. Two of these different academies offer students hands on work to do, training them for the future. The student council in the school is great, they reward students to with good grades, with breakfast, and include them in other traditions. Most of the staff are nice and help students after school and in school. The school has multiple programs for students to join after school. Lastly, the school tries to help students in some way, but if students don't want to help themselves the teachers won't be able to help them either.

The teachers are really committed to helping you learn. Especially if you are in a CTE Academy, your teacher stays with you from sophomore through senior year so it feels like your peers are your second family and your teacher is your school parent. There are many sports such as basketball, baseball, volleyball, track and field, and even fencing. We also have many events and activites happen in the school like cook-offs, henna tattoos and gay pride day. One thing that could have used improvement were the cleanliness of the bathrooms but after the first two years of being in the school that issue had already been resolved. There really is not a boring day in this school and I'm always excited to come and see my friends and teachers.
There are alot of clubs and acitivities so you can get involved. Also, there are alot of helpful staff!
