I liked the friendly, hard-working atmosphere created by the teachers, staff, and students. The curriculum presented by the school wasn't too rigorous and didn't cause me too much stress. The teachers and coaches are also very understanding with the idea behind students having many responsibilities, and sometimes not being able to compromise. This school helped me prepare for college, and set me on a successful course for my life after high school.

There were many options for clubs, but it was very hard to be in multiple. In addition, many people have to choose between academics and sports, because you can’t do both. The administration wasn’t very good and we have 2 buildings, making school safety not very good. We are currently under construction to connect the buildings, but it won’t be finished for another 2 years.
It has a wonderful Fine Arts department, but many things it could change. Like any school, it has its flaws but all in all it is a wonderful school!
