High School Senior

On Overall Experience: The school is a bad experience unless you make the right friends and get involved in the right activities at the school. I wouldn't choose this school though because some staff and students are very bad. Smoking is big at the school and so are sexual activities throughout the school. This school has little funding and is completely outdated and filthy.

On Administration & Policies: The principal tries to become very involved with the student body. The guidance counselors are horrendous here. Only go to them if you have to otherwise stay far away from them. They are unhelpful and rude. The office staff are rude as well but a little more helpful. Bullying is not tolerated but it still occurs. Fight occur frequently at this school more so than the other high schools I have attended.

On Sports & Fitness: Football is very big in our school so therefore they are better funded and become very involved. The rest of the facilities are average or below it. School spirit is big during the football season though.

On Academics: A variety of classes are offered at different learning levels. Also the IB program is offered at the school. Some tea hers are excellent while others are poor in teaching and seem to no longer care or have given up. The work load is fair and I highly recommend taking any class except for standard level classes. The teacher to student relationship seems to be much better.

On Health & Safety: We have security and trained teachers at the school but I still feel danger when around certain students. The nurse can't do very much. I fear of getting hurt at school sometimes because teachers can only do so much when a student looses his/her temper.
