High School Senior

On Health & Safety: Since i have attended this school I have noticed that fights are rarely seeing or reported. eventually their are some fights but not as many to frightened other students. health policies are good. The school has its own clinic and every time we play a sport we must get our physical exam.

On Sports & Fitness: Several students are involved with sports, however, they get left behind with their academics because they play more attention to the sport they are playing. in addition, the school does have a gym to work out, where anyone can go and exercise.

On Administration & Policies: The school is strict with their uniform policy as well as being tardy. every time you are not wearing your uniform or either your late you will receive a demerit.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: Besides being involved in different programs your counselors don't really help you prepare to attend college and teachers don't prepare you for college. the classes we take are easy and simple; its not a great method to prepare us for our future. buildings, facilities, and restrooms are maintained neutral.
