High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: Speaking as a member of marching band, I can say students are very committed. But looking from the outside into some other activities, it doesn't seem that way.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I would apply to the tech academies in my city.

High School Senior

On Teachers: There are some really good teachers that go above and beyond everyday, but others simply don't care.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: I don't participate in any sports, but from being at the football games with the band I can say that the school definitely lacks spirit.

3
High School Senior

On Health & Safety: The school tries very hard to push safety but it's never enforced to the students. Students often open external doors for who they think are students but, as we experienced one time last year, that's not always the case.
