On Overall Experience: One of my favorite experiences at this school was the activities we do around holidays and getting to disect animals in biology. If I were to choose to go to this school again, I definitely would because it's in a nice area and it was recently renovated.

On Extracurriculars: There are some after-school activities such as sports, drama, frisbee and chess club. Some teachers stay after school to tutor or lead these clubs. It's a great opportunity for kids to meet new people and stay active.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: The social scene basically consists of cliques just as every high school does. There are many different friend groups that onl hang out in their own pod. Peer pressure is obviously there because some kids are pressured into doing bad things like drugs or drinking.

On Educational Outcomes: I do not feel like I'm totally prepared for college. I feel like it's going to be an eye opener once I start.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There is a wide variety of sports and each one has a great coach. Track and cross country are very active sports and work together in activities such as running through town together. Football, soccer, wrestling, and basketball attract a lot of people from the community and they are always fun to watch!
