This high school was great and had a lot of opportunity! However, the students were disruptive, and a lot of the teachers were not serious in preparing us for college. There was never any punishment for students who were disruptive, and teachers were harder on the good kids than the bad.

I really loved the size of the school, as well as the opportunities that it offered. The school has an amazing music program with opportunities for students to audition for district, regional, and state level competitions. The sports program is also very good, with traveling teams that compete against other AAAA schools. I enjoyed the availability of elective classes, as well as the foreign language opportunities.
I like the opportunities we have here, I could honestly do anything related to my major. I love the music and drama program as well as the diverse amount of classes we can take. I also enjoy the teachers here because they are here to help you and teach you what you want. Although I love the school I would change the communication. I feel like sometimes there are pointless rules and things that need to be explained better or not implemented at all. There aren't many but I think the vague rules and why they are in place causes people not to respect them some times.
