My High school experience is great! The beginning of my 10th Grade year is when it officially started. When I first got here, I was a little lost. However, as the weeks went by I got used to my classes, teachers, friends, and assignments. I also did sports to make my sophomore year exciting. Basketball I really enjoyed playing especially having an awesome coach. Then after basketball season was over I decided to run track with coach Bradford. My high school experience is still going on

I love my high school! There is just so much to do around the campus whether its clubs, sports, or just simple activities. The teachers are excellent as well and want you to do better in the classroom.
It's a district that would benefit greatly from change and from more diversity among the staff. It would be great if the majority of the district didn't forgive the lack of certification from the staff simply because they've known each other for so long. It would also be great if funds were more evenly distributed among all the clubs and organizations and if more importance was given to academics and not sports, if student athletes were held to the same standards as everyone else and not allowed to skate by or be given extra chances to make up grades simply because they decide to put sports before their education while others actually put in effort and don't get the same benefits.
