On Administration & Policies: I havn't really gotten to know all teachers but I did like them all. They were caring if not very talkative with many students. Though it's like the real world, some teachers chose favorites but I ignored those ones. I loved my principals and most my teachers. I think even the ladies who served us food at the school were kind. Even if they had their days but i know their jobs arn't easy. The dress code... There were rules but of course not everyone followed it. We had this one house principal who is retiring this year, she would go after these kids. She did her Job well. This is a wonderful school filled with both good kids and bad so it's not perfect but it's in my view the best because if they were on the wrong path, there would be someone there to set them straight. My four years in high school were very entertaining. I'm glad I attended there.

On Sports & Fitness: I played a sport my freshmen year but got injured. The competitive level of students with sports is very high which is good but the coaching isn't always the best and that's why we aren't known for a lot of sports that have very good potential.

On Teachers: I love the majority of the teachers at the school. I don't know a lot of them because I don't take all the classes but the majority of the teachers are amazing! Like I said before, some of my teachers have become mentors to me and have helped me not only with school but on a personal level with so many struggles I have overcome in the past year. Some teachers make learning fun with different activities and themes to there lessons which is fun. Some teachers just lecture and make students take notes, which can be so boring. Also some teachers are so slow on grading and put things into our grading system in the last minute which drives some students nuts because we would like to know how we are doing especially if we have completed assignments months ago.

On Health & Safety: Again, I don't drink or do drugs so I am not sure of the policies but I have heard of people who have gotten in trouble for smoking and or drinking. The nurses have programs after school and are available during the day for students to go there if they need something or have questions. There is also a counselor for students who are not so great and drink and do drugs. There is also a police officer in the school at all times if there is ever an incident or a problem or if students need him.

On Overall Experience: Like I said before, our school is very diverse which makes us so unique.
