High School Senior

On Overall Experience: This school is better than the other schools available, so, in that aspect, I would choose my school again. I like that my school is an arts school but that we also put a strong emphasis on academic success.

On Teachers: I complained about this before, and I shall do it again. I love some of my teachers. Col. Kincaid, Mrs. Lane, Mr. Wallace, Mrs. Durden, and a few others are very good teachers. They lead good classes and are able to teach well. However, there are some who are just horrible at communicating and seem clueless. At the end of a successful year, I have to worry that the next year, I won't have the same good teacher.

On Health & Safety: We have a resource officer for emergencies, but I feel safe in my school normally.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: Our school is an okay condition and usually is able to accommodate all that is needed. Some classrooms seem to be too small to serve the number of students, but it's only to be expected from a school who's numbers are growing every year.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: It's hard for me to talk about the dress code in a favorable light just because I dislike it so much. I agree that there should be rules regarding what students can and can't wear, but I don't appreciate the fact that we cannot wear colors and that we have to wear collars. I understand the reasons regarding the rules, but it doesn't stop me from disliking them. In turn, I dislike the enforcement of our dress code, but mostly because it seems stupid to waste time sending a student to change when we could be teaching them something that will actually help them in the future.
