I like that they like to engage the students in nearly everything from clubs to academics to sports. They are always up to engaging people in things at the school. However, the food is terrible and they could prepare us more for college readiness.

I spent 13 years at this school and am not sure I would attend again if I had the choice. I enjoyed that it was a smaller school. There were under 100 graduating kids in my class of 2013. The school ran off of athletics. That always seemed to be the most important aspect of our education. Everything revolves around sports. No one would take National Honor society or key club seriously. Favorite experiences were homecoming dances, a select few English classes and having work based learning as an option for 6th hour period. The school has a different principal now, so I am sure things are running much differently and more smoothly. There always seemed to be a double standard between students and teachers. It wasn't always the best environment to learn in.
I have gone to this school almost my whole life and I have to say it has its pros and cons. Some of the pros of this school include the athletic programs, the drama program, and a select few teachers and students. Now on to the cons, This school has a percentage of students who are rude and very crude, also some of the teachers honestly don't know how to teach and just give out work sheets, The lunches are less then mediocre, and the heating and air conditioning could really be used once in a while. Would I chose to come to this school again? Yes, because even though it does have its downsides it really has taught me a lot about myself, others, and life.
