On Overall Experience: This school is relatively okay. There isn't really anything that makes it stand out too much. We have a great agriculture program and a good football team, but other than that there's not much.

On Teachers: Some teachers are really great! I had some teachers that really inspired me, however, I had many teachers that simply didn't care at all.
