Many teachers carry a passion about the subject they teach and can really relate to kids and guide kids through their courses, while on the other hand there is some that do not understand how to help their students. The female sports tend to lead better than any of the male sporting events. This is a very average school not a lot of diversity between kids:

I would go here again in a heartbeat! I think it is very close-knit which is hard to find in a school anymore. I loved being involved in the music and theatre programs here, they were very fun and shaped me into the person I am today. I also think that the teachers were always pretty cool. I loved high school here.
Our school has great teachers and a descent amount of course choices. More courses are being added each year. I wish some of them would have been available when I was entering high school. Our school's weak area is discipline. Discipline isn't always consistent with everyone.
