I liked the teachers and the learning environment! The one thing I didn’t enjoy as much was the lack of school spirit and lackluster dances and events. I would have loved to experience an amazing dance or football game, but I am overall glad with the environment.

Teachers here either really care about your success or are only there for the paycheck. The school is in the middle of a re-model and is really nice so far. It is difficult to walk from the third floor to the portables on the other side of the campus in the five minute passing period. Lots of different science and elective sciences like child development, arts, psychology and foods. I love the fast paced aspect of my honors history class. Dont try to get answers through the counselors, they are basically useless and never answer emails and questions. Hard to get information from administration as well.
Most of the teachers are quite nice, and the new building is too. However, the school administration is terrible. There is very little communication between the staff and students, and the needs of the students are overlooked in favor of an easy solution. They try to control the students instead of work with us. For example, as a response to vaping last year, they locked the new portable bathrooms. They were supposed to unlock them during passing period, however it almost never happened, which forced students to walk all the way across campus to the only accessible bathrooms, which only had about 6 stalls.
