Junior: I have been in this school for 5 years, enough to acknowledge that even though it is an excellent school, it needs lots of changes. Their actions of helping students by lending computers, giving food, providing internet access in their parking lot, and more during quarantine to ensure students could continue learning virtually makes them admirable. However, they often (if not always) confuse and give more importance to ratings and "high" grades just for the glory. Their mistake is making sure us, as students, have high grades. Even if that means cheating (which they do punish), running on 3 hours of sleep to finish assignments, drinking caffeine almost everyday to stay awake, and even if that means leaving aside our mental health just to meet deadlines, pass, and achieve "our" goals.

Alum: My overall high school experience as a high school student was great! Would not have asked for a different high school experience. The friends, coaches, teacher and unforgettable memories were great overall. Could say that the food needs to be different and the possibility to give the future students more possible resources that will teach them about college classes, registration, scholarship opportunities, loans and the basics to understand how things actually work.
