The staff and teachers are great. The school is pretty good academically, but the number clubs and organizations is a bit lacking. We have FFA, FCCLA, NHS, Speech Team, Knowledge Bowl and some basic sports.
I decided to go to a college that is almost extremely challenging, so it is expected that I was not fully prepared for that. When I compare my experience to that of others, though, I feel that I am lucky to have gone the school I did. I just wish they had more advanced classes to count for college credit.
