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.

On Teachers: There are good and bad.the general education classes spoon feed everything because "they have to cater to what the lowest student can do". If you want help teachers are there, some, not all, reach out to students who aren't doing so well.

High School Senior

On Academics: The teachers actually care. If you are willing to put in work so are they. The counselors are supportive and you typically get work you can handle. If you can handle it then you get put into AP classes

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: Our school gets money for the sports that they care about, football and basketball. Boys sports that is. There seems to be little to no care in our female sports and little to no care for sports other than football and basketball even though we have kids that play other sports

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: Last year our security guards enforced dress code policies, this year we have the same policies and security officers, yet dress-code is not enforced. We have girls that wear virtually no clothing and nothing is said to them
