I love that all the students here are kind to one another. I think this is rare in high schools nowadays, and I am proud of my school for this. Also, the teachers, guidance counselors, and the staff in general really push you to be the greatest you could be. They encourage me to be a better me than I was yesterday. However, I would like to see more sports teams. It would give more students a chance to participate in after school physical activities if they were given more choices.

There is a great variety of extracurricular activities available for all students. Everyone has a chance to find something to fulfill their needs. I can tell that teachers as well as students are very devoted to their clubs. They create many opportunities so the after-school activities won't ever get boring. Teachers help their members organize different activities like field trips, fundraisers, school parties and much more. The level of commitment is very high and is driven by each student's motivation. Most of the student's ideas gets the administration support which is great, because with their support and help we can do much more.
The most of the new teachers were inexperienced and did not provide the necessary tools. Also the senior guidance counselor was not available when students needed her the most. There should be classes that better prepare their students for the real world situations. The diversity of the school was great and very inclusive. The clubs and activities included arrange of different selections.
