On Health & Safety: We have an armed police officer in the school almost all the time and there are security cameras on every hall. I feel like this school is pretty safe but I think there are always things that can be done to improve the security because you can never be too safe.

On Sports & Fitness: We have a lot of athletes at this school. The fan sections at sporting events, especially football, basketball, and soccer, are better than almost any other school around here. The school spirit at pep rallies is crazy and it makes for a fun environment for everyone. The weight room and fields are all in good shape as well.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: Most of our principals are very caring and willing to help in any situation. They know how to have fun with us but they also do their job when it comes to discipline. The counselors are very helpful. The office staff is usually friendly, especially the lady that does attendance. Sometimes the dress code is enforced too harshly and other times not at all so I think that could be improved on.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: So far, I've had a great high school experience at this school. I've really enjoyed being a part of the softball team and it's something I'll always have to look back on. Our school is unique because it earned a National Blue Ribbon School Award. If I had to do high school all over again, I would probably get a little more involved in other clubs but I would definitely choose to come back to this school.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: The school offers almost any sport high schoolers would consider playing. There are also a variety of clubs to participate in such as the key club and robotics club. I've played softball the past three years and at least one member of administration was at almost every home game. The football and basketball games are the most fun for students.
