Overall a great school! Something I would like to see change is when students have opinions, they should act on those. The school doesn’t tend to listen on students opinions.

This high school provides an average experience more or less. Some of the teachers at this school are very engaging and welcoming, but some are not. Also, although there are some rude students, most students are kind and keep to themselves or their friend groups. For a public school, it is definitely not the worst, but there are many things to improve upon. I would personally like to see more of a focus on ACT Prep and college readiness. The average ACT score of this school could be much higher if more emphasis was placed on it.
I feel like I have had a good experience here at this school. I feel I am college ready in all aspects, not only academically but socially as well. There are a diverse number of sports, clubs, and organizations to include everyone. Most of the staff, including teachers and counselors, ensure a positive and safe school environment to make every student feel welcome and accepted.
