For a small town high school, I feel that I got a pretty good education during my time here. The teachers here are/were phenomenal. Many of them have fueled my passions for certain subjects (Foreign Language, Business, Science, etc.). The buildings are pretty old and slightly falling apart. However, the bond they just passed should alleviate all of those problems. I feel that I was well-prepared for college.

I love the overall environment the school provides day-to-day. I especially appreciate the quality CBI Program, which allows us (as students) to interact with each member of our school family regardless of differences.
The teachers are very friendly, but can be inconsistent with homework and teaching style. The student population isn't extremely diverse, but students overall are nice and accepting. The sports teams are pretty good, some are really good, and support for athletics is great.
