On Teachers: From my exprience with my teachers, and they're AP treachers mostly, have had fun and awesome times even though we had to study our butts off. My teachers always made time for us, they took whatever available day they could to helo us with whatever we needed, when their kid(s) had an appt. they had a back-up for us to help tutor us in anything.

On Administration & Policies: Our adminisrtation and policies do their best with us crazy children. They try to keep the peace and have everything in order.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: The health at the school ain't bad but it could use work. Sometimes but NOT ALL the time, there will be a hair in the lunches, the nurse may take a minute to get where she is needed. But they're very slim cause we barely have anyone that's THAT irresponsible about having their insulin checked or making sure that they don't eat anything they shouldn't. Safety is ok. We're not criminals but we have our fights and tazing but nothing to serious.
