I was very fortunate with the teachers I had and the opportunities I was given. However, I feel many of my peers were not able to experience this. Perhaps it was because I was so adamant about my goals, but it was still hard to see others not reach their full potential. That being said, there are very wonderful people who will help you when you ask. At the high school, I have no complaints about any of the administrators.

I liked many things, our school is very close and we come together when it comes to sports, everyone goes to the football and basketball games. Many of my teachers are very supportive and I wouldn't be where I am without them. Many of us students try to preserver in our studies along with our athletics. Many students also partake in student council or NHS. The thing we need to work on is getting our art or music program bigger and more known and supported.
The teachers are absolutely fantastic, and all of them are extremely helpful. The staff is friendly and approachable, and if you need help, you'll get it. Problems are in the administration and the way that some classes and other school things are handled.
