On Overall Experience: This school is average at everything. The diversity is average, the grades are average, the teachers are average, the classes, the sports teams, the food, the pep rallies, everything. And administration cares more about dress code and payments and students being late to class and making sure that they have a pass than they are about making sure that everyone is getting a fair and equal education. How can I be in the classroom if I have to go to the office to be written up for a dress code violation? Then you're going to make me change into something "appropriate", which is going to make me miss even more class time. They just don't have the right things at the top of their list.

On Administration & Policies: I've never had to go through any of it, so I can't really say.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: The office is always stocked with flyers and other types of information, but the counselors are rarely ever in during the "suggested" visit times (Before school, break, lunch, after school). I've never even talked to my counselor because he's never there.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There aren't really any champion teams, so no one really cares.
