    Teachers: Some are nice, helpful, engaging, and willing to assist students who they recognize and who approach them about being in need. Others are far from that. It's a mixed situation.

    Administration & Policies: There are some ridiculous policies and then there are some very necessary policies I am very glad are in place.

    Educational Outcomes: It was more-so through my involvement in different organizations, such as Upward Bound that helped prepare me for college. However, I feel my AP classes helped prepare me for the work load and responsibilities I should come to expect in college.

    Academics: This school has arguably some of the best academic performance and opportunities in the area. However, it does still lack in some areas such as the arts department, etc. and it has some funding issues for providing supplies for different classes.

    Overall Experience: I was very fortunate and had a decent time in high school. I made friends and worked my butt off for a 4.25 in my AP classes and was a band geek. However, many others didn't have that great of a time and I must say there are many things that desperately need improved around that school, between the facilities and the awareness of issues and understanding of different peoples needs and most importantly the lack of funding to meet those needs, there is much still to be desired there.
