I like that it has a big school feel in a small town environment. I like that the teachers are willing to help outside of classroom hours and we follow block scheduling. Block scheduling made learning much more detailed and better 1 on 1 support with the teacher. I do wish we had more electives to chose from that would fit into the schedule. I wish more of our Junior and Senior classes were offered as college credit classes. I wish we had many more clubs and honor programs.

Principal and vice principal care about the students, guidance counselors are ok, office staff is helpful! All policies on bullying, dress code, attendance and anything else is in effect and they stand by all the policies!
I don't know if I would go to another school because I met my best friends here. Also , there have been some outstanding teachers, parents, and coaches that I will never forget. There have been the fair share of bad ones too. Our athletics are sometimes inconsistent, but I would say overall I've had fun doing them. The parents of the children in sports programs are very supportive and always available to help with and fundraising, rides, foods, or events we may have or need.
