On Overall Experience: Even though this school drove me absolutely CRAZY I wouldn't trade it for the world I have very good friends at and from this school I met my current boyfriend of 3 years here I was able to be apart of a cheer family that I love very dearly we won state not as a team but as a family I made great bonds with teachers and it got me where I am today. If I can make it out of this "jungle" alive so can you

On Teachers: Some teachers are amazing other don't go past student teacher. My dance teacher offered to pay for my prom dress and she always let me come in her office when I was upset or crying she was there we had a relationship above student teacher but I was still able to respect her in the class room

On Academics: Really depends on the teacher. Someone who makes it easier to learn and understand but also not completely boring either

On Administration & Policies: The school puts way to much emphasis on what we wear and not what we learn or get out of being there.
