High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: There has been a change in administration every year for the last four years, causing students to be confused with policy changes at the beginning of the new school year. This year, the principal is involved and spends time checking in on certain classrooms every so often. The counselors are very busy all year round fixing schedules, talking to students about college options, etc. There isn't a major bullying problem. The dress code is subjective to each teacher, as some teachers may choose to enforce the dress code more strictly than others - but it is not as strict as it once was. The attendance policy is very strict and goes from a certain amount of tardies being equal to lunch detentions, and then if persistent, In School Suspension. Absences, if they exceed ten a semester, can result in a failing grade for that course.

On Resources & Facilities: Teachers are very hands on in helping the students receive the aid they need in their classes. The school buildings are slightly outdated, as they haven't been updated in quite some time. There has been a push recently to provide more technology and resources to the students - including the use of mobile lab carts. These carts provide students and teachers that are unable to book the library with the ability to do activities to engage the students. The guidance counselors are sometimes difficult to see, due to the volume of students putting in requests to see them. Students that are in need of college prep have resources available to them. Tutoring is widely available, due to the implimentation of a new system during the lunches, in order to provide each student with 30 minutes of tutoring a day.

On Sports & Fitness: When I went there was a ton of school spirit. There were pep rallies and clubs to support the teams. We would dress up for each game and make it a theme. Overall the school spirit was outstanding.

On Educational Outcomes: I felt very prepared for life after graduation. I had the skills I needed and the classes I needed to apply and get into universities. I decided to attend NC State University and love it.

On Health & Safety: Pretty good no tolerance policies when it comes to bullying, drinking, and drugs- but it still happens.
