Honestly the programs at this school are amazing and the teachers work hard. The only negative thing that I would say about this school is the culture and atmosphere for Honors/AP/IB students. The AP classes are overcrowded because students want to raise their GPAs and as a result the electives (such as journalism, art, etc) have suffered due to a lack of interest. Of course many of these students are high-achieving but unfortunate some students will make sure they look good for colleges by any means necessary. From cheating on tests, taking on a school club for the label of "president" to even buying private college counselors (former admissions officers) this school's atmosphere is toxic to students who do not play by the same rules. This school lacks school spirit and many of these students don't care about learning---they only care about getting high grades for their transcripts. I wish I went to Troy instead.

I liked how clean kept the campus was. I see the janitors early in the morning and they are very friendly people. Also, the school itself is a wonderful place. We have a new gym, the jumbotron keeps us updated about school events, our school newspaper has won for best high school paper in various competitions, and the students are young, sociable people. Even our school principal is an upbeat man who loves listening to innovative ideas that could make our school even better than it is. Honestly, I love going to school here, the spirit is intoxicating!
The school fit my needs as a student as well as a theatre student. However, some programs are heavily favored over others by the administration. It makes students feel unsupported and as though they are not cared about. The academics were excellent, but some educators put an emphasis on getting an A rather than teaching their students. It was hard to learn in those classes, therefore it’s hard to remember the subject being taught. These teachers often also made their students afraid of asking questions and attempting to understand the concept out of fear of being labeled “dumb”.
