Teachers are very supportive, great listeners, and very understanding. My teachers encouraged me to achieve more because they knew I have a lot of potential as well as my classmates. They have prepared us for job interviews, formal presentations, and so many more things that have helped me in the work field and in college. I enjoyed playing sports and having the support I had to keep up with my grades.
I had a good experience at this school. I was able to see some of the work done in STEM fields. I gained experience in basic machining, programming, and designing on CAD. The teachers are all very supportive and willing to help you achieve your goals.
