On Teachers: All of the teachers I had in high school were very engaging and knowledgeable. They always made class fun and interesting to the students and made sure we all understood the material. The teaching staff always went above and beyond inside and outside the classroom.

On Overall Experience: I loved everything about this high school. School spirt was a huge part of the student body and everyone was very enthusiastic about our sports teams. This school had many clubs and organizations so that anyone could be a part of something no matter what your talents or background was. If I could I wouldn't change a thing about high school besides maybe trying even harder on my studies.

On Resources & Facilities: My school had the best of the best when it came to teachers and counselors. They always made sure that every student did well in the class and learned everything we needed to know to succeed. My high school had very nice buildings and they supplied us with top of the line technology and the newest textbooks. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't have picked any other high school.

On Educational Outcomes: I applied for colleges and got accepted to almost all of the schools I applied for. I attended a university not too far from my home so I ended up living at home for my whole freshman year. I felt very prepared for college because of my high school. I think they did a pretty good job at getting me ready for college and the real world. I also think that it is hard for a school or anyone try to teach you about life. The best way to learn about the real world is to experience it first hand.

On Health & Safety: The students at my high school always seemed to be friendly to one another and to hear about a fight was very rare. Everyone was safe for the most part and we never had any major problems with students. My school always locked the gates after the bells rang so no strangers could walk on campus without going through the office first. I enjoyed going to this high school and thought it was a safe environment for everyone.
