The school was Really good at the time I was there. I was involved in the marching band and the varsity soccer team. That experience gave me experiences and opportunities i thought i would never have. The technology at this school is amazing. Each student had their very own Apple Macbook Air . Just having those made the experience of learning extraordinary. In 2016 the school brought a new program called canvas to submit work and etc. (like how colleges use blackboard) . The teachers didn't use the abilities of canvas that often , but seeing my mother who is a teacher and my brother who is a senior at the same high school, They use canvas extensively now. Especially through the corona virus pandemic of 2020. Overall my experience their is a four out of 5 due to some bumps in the rough and new technology being learned. I bet this school is 5 out of 5 now if i was to graduate now.
I love the atmosphere. I know just about everyone I go to school with. Everyone is friendly for the most part and you always know what is going on. There is never much change which is not always good, but we get the job done!
