The school does so much to benefit the students and insure they are prepared for their lives after high school. The councilors spend countless hours working with the high school students. The only downside is how they clearly overlook the arts programs such as the drama club, they are far more focused on the football and weightlifters. The only other music or performing extracurricular you can join is band. Though our band is excellent, we don't have any option for people who would like to sing or participate in vocals, other than a musical once a year. I feel if the school gave more opportunities for artistic and musically inclined students, it would be a much more open environment.

Very nice, pleasant home-town atmosphere. Has some of the most intelligent, thoughtful, and understanding staff and administration I have had the pleasure of meeting. The school is located in a nice area surrounding the small village of North Branch. The school also has an abundance of sports teams like football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and soccer. For the more artistic of us there are the drama club, art club, Quiz Bowl, among others.
Teachers are great! Football program suck along with baseball, coaches are not very good or fair. The classes are diverse and like switching out different teachers in every quarter. So many opportunities to be involved in the school, :school plays, marching band; spanish club; you name they have it.
