On Student Culture & Diversity: We all come from a variety of backgrounds and at the end of the day we are a family and we care for one another

On Food: People have claimed to have found maggots in their food. Alot of the food is gross and ill portioned for a high schoolers regular food intake. The salads are often wilted and it would be difficult to be a vegetarian here

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: Our school could use some more upkeep and some updates. In addition, we need more mentors in the school.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: The people at this school are rather nice. The teachers have always cared and we truly are a family. We do have our downfalls and people may judge us, but I'm proud to be a big red.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: There are many options. Problematically, things aren't announced very well and sometimes people cant get rides if they miss school buses. It would be great to have more student involvement.
