On Overall Experience: The high diversity really opened my mind to different kinds of people. Mostly everybody I come across here is fairly open-minded to others' opinions and thoughts. I have come across many opportunities and the administrative body does not try to keep students at similar academic levels through course limitations or anything of the sort. Students have much freedom in the courses they wish to take in my experience.

On Administration & Policies: The principal is very supportive of the staff and students. The guidance counselors are very effective in providing opportunities and advice to students. The dress code policy has become slightly more lenient since the past year and bullying is not especially prominent to me, although fighting is.

On Sports & Fitness: Athletics are very much supported and although we may not be the best, students remain supportive of the athletes. I cannot say for other sports, but being on the tennis team is a very enjoyable experience. All new players are welcome and will be taught how to play. Team members are very friendly and supportive of eachother.

On Academics: Class levels include standard, honors, IB, and AP. The teachers are very knowledgeable and open and interactive with the students. Workload in the IB and AP level are very heavy and demanding.

On Teachers: Every teacher I've ever had at this school has been very engaging and caring of the success of the students. Each teacher has offered tutoring to give extra help to a student that may need it. The teachers at this school use a grading system called PowerSchool to keep students as well as their parents aware of their academic performance in each of classes.
