On Educational Outcomes: i feel mostly prepared for college. mostly because my college advisor has told me a full time college student has around 30-45 hours of study time per a week which is a lot compared to how much i did in high school. but i will be able to adjust. my high school teachers did warn us about the work load too in college and told us to take notes and to not skip class.

On Administration & Policies: The administration here can be good or bad. Some do not care to listen to the needs of the students including some of the counselors but others dedicate their lives to helping the students achieve success.

Parent

On Administration & Policies: Overall the administration is friendly and available to answer questions or solve problems. The office and nursing staff are efficient and helpful. No dress code at all, perhaps there should be a minor one!

On Teachers: Very good experience with teachers. A few so so ones, but overall very good. A variety of teaching styles keep learning interesting; some inconsistency in grading.

On Resources & Facilities: The school buildings are very old and dated, as is the landscaping. Sports facilities have been updated, such as the track and football field. The gym is slated for a makeover soon. Guidance counselors are average, it's best to do your own research for college, but they do make sure you have the right classes for each grade level progression. There is free student tutoring at lunch and after school. There is a strong PTA and a year end auction fundraiser. There is no bus transportation except for sporting events.
