On Administration & Policies: The administrators and counselors work very hard to make sure that all students have a voice and are able to express concern. Many times throughout the year we are asked about ways that we think we our school can improve and I believe they take those suggestions and consider them. However, the staff does not come looking for you. If you have an issue you have to be mature enough to step up and ask for help. Once you do ask for help they try their hardest to help you out in the best way that they can.
