Teachers and Staff are great here in all aspects! Especially in Avid and Health Academy teachers allow you to achieve whatever you strive for. They , including counselors like: Mr.Velasquez and Ms.Anderson keep track of your grades and move out of their way to help you whenever ! However, Health academy controls your entire schedule here so it keeps you out of any extracurricular activities and disables automatically when I'm the program ap classes, this could be changed !

My overall experience at this institution was average, it wasn't my ideal anticipation of attending a high school. There's changes that need to be made in order to improve this school. The bathrooms are often a mess and smell of marijuana, the floors are covered in food, the textbooks are scribbled up and falling apart, and some of the students were some of the rudest people I've met. In order to improve this school there needs to be a zero tolerance for a dirty cafeteria area and misconduct. Also, the textbooks need to be replaced with new ones. If this is done then this school would improve.
