The teachers will go above and beyond to help students in anyway possible. I would like to see more school spirited events happen, like assemblies and pep rallies!

I appreciate having a school near me to get a free education, but this is not a good school to me. My school has had fights daily at lunch, which is not okay. My school does not do a good job at making students feel safe. We had a student last year making threats and it was scary and felt unsafe. I think a good school should feel safe and make me feel comfortable getting my education. School is not something we should take for granted so I think the people who want to learn should feel safe learning. The people who do not care for an education should go elsewhere and not damage others learning space.
I like the fact that there are many teachers willing to help anywhere at any time. They put their time into you if you put your time and dedication into your work. I dislike that not everybody is involved in everything. The support throughout the teacher staff for sports and other activities is amazing. I dislike the way we handle some situations like bullying and destruction of others property and the school property. We have a lot of out-of-school activities to offer and a bunch of kids are able to stay actuve as well.
