On Administration & Policies: I never had a problem with the administration, though they often brought parents and students in due to ditching and grade problems.

On Sports & Fitness: Even though I personally didn't care for sports, it was still normal to show lots of school spirit and attend all the football games. Our football games with our rival school were the most fun, and the students always supported the team even when the rival beat us. The faculty was also very supportive to all teams. My school also had a few interesting teams such as a badminton team that was started by a few of the students!

On Academics: This school had an awesome option for Dual Credit enrollment at a nearby Community College, which helped a few of the academic classes succeed. Students could receive college credits for required high school courses. This pushed many students to challenge themselves academically to be at a college level while still a Junior or Senior in high school. There were also Advanced Placement options which challenged students even more than the dual credit classes did. During senior year, many students were able to choose their classes to fit what they were interested it. I, for example, was able to take dual credit classes for things I was interested in, such as American Sign Language, and then I was able to be enrolled in multiple choir and music classes.

On Educational Outcomes: The emphasis on continuing education was definitely felt through high school. The honors classes I took prepared me for college courses by challenging me to think critically. Most of my current college classes require problem solving and critical thinking skills, which I had a basis for because of high school.
