The music program is great! But the rest of the school makes me want to scream, cry, and hide. This school is extremely overcrowded, even for such a large campus. It’s also dirty. The campus could be maintained; especially outdoors. There’s a place underneath the bleachers known as the “Gum Wall” and it’s so gross to walk by each day! A lot of students, but not all, don’t have respect towards one another nor the teachers. This school cares more about looking good by making students take so many tests, excluding the mandatory standardized tests, which also suck. Though this school isn’t the worse, it definitely doesn’t live up to its “pride.”

I am grateful that my high school has given me opportunities in sports, leadership, community relations, and academics. I know many high school students do not take advantage of the opportunities available to them. I was lucky enough to have a tremendous amount of support from my family and the educators in our district. This lead me to student council, soccer, cross country, track and field, national honor society and an accelerated bioscience program.

I would like for our school to have more updates. It is an older district and some of the facilities are aged and worn down. We live in a strong community and I would like them to support the educational system.
I have had an overall really positive experience at the high school. It is quite a big school, but the staff work really hard to make everyone feel very welcomed. There are so many clubs and extracurricular activities that you are bound to find the place where you belong!
