High School Sophomore

On Teachers: Teachers are either wonderful or they are horrible. It's very 50-50.

5
High School Sophomore

On Student Culture & Diversity: There is so much cultural diversity and it is one of my favorite things about the school.

High School Sophomore

On Food: It's not horrible, although I do miss the peanut butter and nellie sandwiches.

High School Sophomore

On Administration & Policies: The new principle is subpar. She has come from a middle school hinting she can handle a high school and I'm sort, but that is just not the case. She thinks her ideas are the best and anytime conflicts are brought up she denies or tries to justify them, or worse, she blames them on other people or organizations. The counselors are very good at keeping students up to date on what they need for graduation, but trying to get n appointment time to see them is rather difficult. Dress code is very hypocritical.

High School Sophomore

On Resources & Facilities: The technology is subpar, I like the smart boards but they have to work in order to be useful. The computer systems are very, very, very slow, even though they're said to be 'new'. The facilities are very nice, other than the bathrooms and the entire circle/main wagon wheel building.
