On Sports & Fitness: This year I saw many underclass students not participating at pep rallies and such. They tend to just sit and stare rather than chant, cheer, shout, and jump. Many that show up at sporting events are there just to socialize with friends rather than cheer on the team.

On Academics: Test scores on EOC testing and such tend to be top in the state and teachers and students alike take pride in it. Many teachers give a copious amount of homework but students dedicated enough get through with ease. However many students love to take the easier classes taught by coaches because they have struck up a friendship with them and hope to get a pass on some assignments. Also, with the teachers being a coach, many expect them to not do anything through most of the year.

On Teachers: Some teachers are intimidating and feel comfortable being so. Many other teachers show great knowledge and experience in what they teach. All teachers show that they love to help out many students with problems on assignments.

On Resources & Facilities: The counselor, while usually busy, does his best for us. He always brings us pamphlets and other materials on colleges and gives us plenty of reminders and opportunities to get our information in. Some facilities are lacking. The school is in the process of an expansion so possible upgrades are in mind.
