I had a pretty good time there. Most of the teachers were quite good, but a few didn't seem very interactive. There were very few clubs, and beta club (the years that it actually happened) didn't actually do anything. The food was okay. There wasn't much diversity, and most everyone knew each other. Since everyone else knew each other, it made it pretty difficult for a newcomer like me to enter starting my junior year.

Wonderful teachers who care. Not a lot of options for getting ahead. There aren't real "honors" classes, and very few college options.
The school is relatively safe and clean environment. I would like to see more college readiness. There should be less emphasis on sports and more on academics.
