I enjoyed the time there. I liked the way that teachers would be there for you in whatever you needed. The teachers' ability to strive so the students can learn something new everyday in class is incredible. I wished they changed on how the administration sets priorities and tasks. If you are not someone who is heavily involved in school activities/groups they simply do not care for their well-being. If you are someone who is heavily involved in school activities/groups you can get away with things. Also, the way the administration only care about certain things. Although funds have been issued to fix up things across the district, they truly don't care. Certain sports have way more advantages than others, and nothing gets done academically. I wished that the school put more fundings into the high school than for sports.
Great community support at this school. Teachers, parents, friends, school board members are all greatly involved in the school activities and more. I feel most of the teachers were there to really teach me something and truly cared about my education. I felt like there was the perfect balance of discipline and fun while I attended this school.
The teachers in the school are amazing. They care about the wellbeing of their students. The environment is like that of most high schools. However, there is support for almost all programs, including those of the arts. There are many great clubs and activities that anyone can be a part of! It was great to get involved in high school.
