I like that we have an internship class where we are able to experience a career of our interest and see hands on what that career will be like. The administration has changed a little bit but they are making it a better school with drug testing and academic privileges, such as if you have good grades then you get incentives. I would like the school policy on vaping/tobacco to change because it is not enforced as much and I would like the food to change, there is more food wasted than ate.

It is a small campus highschool, in a small town. Perfect for people that like knowing everyone, and everything that is going on. Our lunches aren't the best I will admit, also the cafateria is too small. They have crammed in as many tables as possible trying to get everyone a seat, but now no handicapped people can get through. On the up side, we are full of school spirirt and love to cheer for our fellow classmates in sports.
This has been a truly unforgettable experience, I feel prepared to embrace life with the help of the teachers at this school I believe I've got a jump start on my next few years at college. I'm so grateful to have had such an amazing time here in this school.
