As much as I enjoy the district, I would put the enjoyment on simply the friends I found there and grew up with. Some of the teachers are enjoyable to be around, not only as teachers, but as people too. However, some of the teachers seem aggravated and like they don't want to be in the building. For academics, in my personal opinion, seem to be relatively adequate. Others might say differently because we all learn at different rates, but I've learned fairly well through this school. The facilities are below average in almost every aspect except for the weight room and football/track and field stadium that an obscene amount of money was dumped into. Safety is also a bit of an issue because our only security is about three school police. For sports, a majority of our programs are above average. Football, softball, track and field, basketball, women's soccer, wrestling, and field hockey are the only sports we do relatively well in. Our baseball and men's soccer teams struggle heavily.
A mostly humble, small school which has a great balance of 1-on-1 interaction and group interaction in its learning environments. The facility is typical of a lower-budget school but has its strong points. Many students are taught to welcome diversity and not to discriminate. Overall a surprisingly good experience!
It's not the best school, but it was alright. Many graduates have said that the school did nothing to prepare them for college. Their disciplinary actions are based solely on opinion and once expelled a girl for the sole reason of "making an example of her", but don't expel other kids who do worse. Their education is mediocre, and sometimes it feels as though you're leaving dummer than you came in. I would like to see them work on how they discipline kids, as well as taking more action to prepare their students for college. While I disliked a lot about it they do have great music and theatre programs, though the school barely funds them.
