On Overall Experience: This school is a typical high school. It was hard for me to find a specific friend group because I was not a jock or someone who partied all the time. My overall experience at this school was fine, but I would definitely not choose this school if I had to again.

On Administration & Policies: Guidance counselors only really care about students when they are seniors and need help choosing a college
