The worst thing about the high school is that there is no air conditioning yet. I played multiple sports and the teams are very good. The school is basically all white and it is pretty safe this past year with no incidents. They have a variety of classes and try their best to prepare you for college. I personally didn't participate in many clubs but there is a few fun ones like the ski club or the ping pong club. Every student is provided with a laptop and charger and the facility is kind of old. The teachers and administration is pretty nice and tend to talk to you about your life after.

I have had a lot of memories at this school, some bad and some good. It's like any other high school. I have liked every teacher I have had, there is one teacher that no one really likes, including me, but i wont name names. The football players are full of themselves and most of them are not very nice. The drama department is fun and they put a lot of effort into their work. The school if full of diverse kids. One year we had over 5 bomb threats, and that was just in the high school. Overall my experience was pretty okay.
The teachers are trained well, the councilor for college prep could have been better but overall good experience.
