The scheduling process was the easiest process ever. During our english classes, students would individually be taken out and placed in the hallway with one of the advisors to get the schedules made. They would talk us through which classes we still needed to take and other ones we could take for fun.

The workload was great. We would get homework almost every night, but it wasn't an overwhelming amount. Basically if you paid attention in class you could get the homework done in about 45min.

There was an abundant amount of option to choose from when it came to classes. We had to have 3 years of science, but there were so many options. Freshman year we all had to take physical science, sophomore year we all had to take biology and then junior/senior year we could choose. Most students took chemistry but I decided to take microbiology and zoology. This was the same for math classes. My senior year I took pre calc and business and consumer math. The business class was amazing for real world situations. We learned how to do taxes, buy cars, buy apartments, plan vacations, it was extremely helpful!

At this school they try to make everything accessible no matter the social standing. Everyone is treated fairly and congratulated for their accomplishments. One thing I loved about this school were the awards. At the end of each academic year they would hold an award ceremony for the high schoolers. It was super fun and exciting to see all your friends get "nominated." The winners would even win a 5$ gift card to target. This made everyone feel important which was nice. Sometimes you might not be the smartest in class, but if you're the most outgoing or most trustworthily, they showed that. They made sure everyone felt important.

This school isn't every big and is still somewhat starting out so there's always going to be a few bumps in the road, but they power through it. My biggest complaints would have to be the limited air conditioning and the uniforms, but other than that, nothing!

Through my high school career I will always remember the events they put on. There were movie nights, basketball games student vs. staff, art shows, spirit week, and a lot more. These were always so fun because the teachers would get involved and be goofy. During spirit week some teachers would dress up, some would play in games, it was just really neat seeing that.

This school just wants to see us succeed and looking back on that I finally understand. My freshman and sophomore year they would have silent study halls before lunch. I HATED it. I love talking and not being able to was so hard, even if it was just for 30min. But, looking back I realize they just wanted to make sure we had enough time for homework or studying or whatever academic struggles we had. My junior/senior year teachers would have ACT prep classes for those that needed it. They would have sign up sheets for kids to come up during the teachers lunch periods if they needed extra help. Talk about dedication!
I went to this school my entire life practically. I started in pre-k and just recently graduated from 12th. Ever since I started I knew this was the only school I'd ever want to attend. The teachers are so devoted to what they do it's amazing. The classrooms are always nicely decorated and show that they care. When it comes to lesson plans they don't hold back. They play games, play videos, read over directions, etc.. They make sure that we completely understand everything and if we don't they make it easy to talk to them any time of day! They even get together and make clubs for us. They have all sorts of clubs for us to join that appeal to everyone. They make everything accessible no matter the economic standing. The thing I love most about the teachers are the relationships they make with the students. I graduated in 2015 and still go back every once in awhile just to catch up, for old times sake. They love seeing how I'm doing and how well i'm doing in school. They're like my best friends.
