Niche User: The balanced, friendly atmosphere where caring and qualified teachers seek to facilitate learning far outweighs the high pressure overcrowded suburban schools.
The town is blue collar, therefore the percentage of families who struggle financially is higher than what we are used to, but the teachers at this school seem to care about their students and strive for excellence in education.

Junior: Academics are incredibly strong. Most students are motivated and excited to attend college. School spirit is electric on Field Days and other events, such as homecoming. Most of the teachers are wonderful and go the extra mile for students. Small school allows for more teacher attention and extra help, but students tend to struggle socially as they grow older. Save for heaps of exchange students who stick to themselves, the student body is not racially diverse. It is certainly not economically diverse, either, and students are not often exposed to differing world views. Technology is an obvious weakness; the “Bring Your Own Device” program is a gross demonstration of socioeconomic discrimination, and the technology person is a grumpy old man who offers no help to students.
