The school itself is nice, the teachers are good for the most part. But, the administration is horrible!

Because of the constant changing of the system and time phrames, its very difficult to get one on one time with teachers for help. Many teachers often blame the students, rather than their teaching skills and are very close minded sometimes. There is quite a variety of available technology for students and it does help education wise. Many teachers fail to put grades into the system for an amount of time. It can get very frustrating.
There are many different clubs for students to join including Spanish club, FFA, drama club, interact club, art club, etc. Every club has their own way of making money so students have more opportunities to do different things. For example, Spanish club makes their money by selling carnations for Valentine's Day and they also sell chicken at the end of January and drama club makes money by selling tickets for their big play that they have for either two or three days in a row in the beginning of March.
