High School Senior

On Overall Experience: I wish that I would've made more time for school activities. Athletics is a HUGE part of this school.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: Almost all students are involved in some activity. Those who aren't are normally getting in trouble. Peer pressure isn't an issue at all. I would say that everyone in a way is a bully at some point, whether it be rumors, teasing, or spreading a secret they trusted you with.

High School Senior

On Teachers: Each student has their own view on how they want a teacher. There are some super strict teachers there that suit some students well, and others not so much. And vi-versa.

High School Senior

On Academics: I feel like teachers purposely plot together homework loads, because one week I would have none. And the next I would be overwhelmed. They do offer tutoring, which I've heard is of great help.

High School Senior

On Educational Outcomes: Few classes actually concentrate on preparing you for college and real life experiences. I wish teachers would treat you more like an adult so it was up to the student to graduate, of course the teacher is there to help.
