High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: The extracurricular clubs and organizations after school are very laid back and keep a fun and inviting atmosphere that draws the students to them, keeping many students involved and involving those who may not have any other niches.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: The exemption and attendance policies for the school tend to keep sick students in the classroom, which I do not agree with, and should be reviewed and edited with proper considerations taken.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The policies in general school-wide are very strict and organized, sometimes to the dismay of students looking to get off easy, but they keep the environment consistent and under control on campus.
