I loved the teachers and the smaller amount of students per graduating class. Having a smaller number of students per graduating class made it easy to really get to know all of my classmates and create forever friends. Although my personal experience here was fantastic, I know some students don't share that same opinion. I do wish to see even more teacher involvement than there already was.

A very diverse faculty and high standards for student achievement provide for a very positive learning environment. The depth of the different departments and their dedication to their craft provide students the opportunity to expand into varying subjects they like, and makes school more bearable.
For the most part the staff was kind and there to help you pass. There were some that made this hard though for students and made them learn straight from the book with very little guidance. It is a small town so there are not a lot of options teacher wise for students to choose and normally they cannot pick what teacher they want. I did well in school for the most part due to a few teachers that were there fully for their students and did what they could to help them succeed.
