Despite the small size of our school, there are a lot of options to suit the needs for all students. From "Academic Challenge" meetings to Spanish Club, to Yearbook, you can find almost anything you could want. A lot of students are involved in many different extra-curricular activities, and it allows us all to connect with new people who share similar interests. Want to be a part of the musical and be a star on the basketball team? You can! Many of the clubs and sports work around each other's schedules so students can enjoy almost all the activities they want.

Girls can not wear shirts that show their shoulders and skirts and shorts that are too short. When it is hot out girls should be able to wear theses things no problem. They should teach boys to be mature enough to not be distracted by girls instead of restricting girls from wearing what they want. The other policies for bullying, suspicion, detention were pretty reasonable.
The building itself is older, but repairs are done and it is relatively clean. We have decent technology in the computer labs and things like that. Our guidance counselor is amazing and can help you with just about anything you need. He helps students find scholarships and prepare them for college, as well as working with our crazy schedules to make sure we get the most out of our school as possible. Our school has an after-school academic resource center where kids can get extra help in any class, as well as student mentoring. Parents are very involved since it is a small school, and all the bus drivers are extremely nice while getting us where we need to go safely.
