I'm about to graduate this amazing school, and there's so much I'm going to miss. I will miss the amazing teachers and advisors who have been so supportive of me and my dreams. I will miss all the diverse clubs and activities that I was blessed to be involved in. And, most of all I will miss the band and the spirit that everyone at the school has.

If there was anything that I would like to see improved upon are the athletics and mainly academics of the school. They pride themselves in their IB program, but they never use it's full potential. They give the basics courses needed for someone to get their IB diploma. Yes, students are challenged, but every year it amazes me to see that the most IB diploma students go to exactly the same place as any other AP or Dual Enrollment student: in-state college. IB is an amazing program, but I just wish they would use it to it's full potential.

Overall, I still love this school, and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

The school always did their best to make the events like pep rallies and dances better year after year. The big focus and emphasis on the performing arts was very noticeable and probably one of the better parts of attending this school. The staff was always friendly and always wanted to do their best jobs in helping all the students have the best experience possible. The academics had a lot of variety in offering easier, regular classes up to more rigorous courses like IB and AP courses. The culture of the school overall was really good and felt very welcoming and just made you feel like you belonged. If you got involved on campus in sports or clubs, no doubt you'd have the best experience at this school.
I was able to make a multitude of friends and create bonds with people that I will cherish for life. I was molded into the person I am now due to the friends I made that teams that I was apart of and the staff that helped run them. I enjoyed and looked up to many of my teachers they were neutering ,caring, and seen you as more than a student. I will carry many of the lessons i have learned good and bad into college and these will defiantly contribute to my success. The school also helped me make some of the most important decisions of my life like the career path I want to take and the college i would like to attend they are also giving me many options of paying for college so that my family wont have to worry.
