On Teachers: A majority of the teachers here are awesome. There are different teaching styles across the board but if you don't like one style there can be a different teacher after school who can explain something differently or there's other students willing to help. If you are respectable and are genuinely interested then the teachers will reciprocate and be helpful to you. They're easy to approach if you have a problem or don't understand something. Grading is very consistent and not biased.

On Overall Experience: High school is what you make it so my experience was great based on the choices I made and the people I was involved with.

On Academics: It all depends on the teachers you get. A majority of mine were awesome and really prepared me all while I enjoyed the course while other classes felt like a punishment. The scheduling process is easy with help from the amazing counselors. The workload depends on the curriculum so mine was heavy from AP and honors classes. There's after school tutoring in all subjects twice a week.

On Educational Outcomes: I felt pretty prepared since I took AP courses that are comparable to college classes. Others may not be as prepared in lower level or remedial classes since college is a lot tougher than that. It all depends on the teachers you get and how their course is work load wise.

On Sports & Fitness: School spirit is only in the form of football even though our team isn't that great. Many students take part in sports here. Fan support for other sports is pretty limited. The gym is kind of outdated but it serves it's purpose. The gym teachers and classes are fun.
