High School Senior

On Academics: I am an Advanced Placement student. All of my classes have been honors or AP since my freshman year. The teachers for these courses definitely challenge students. Workload is tough but can be manageable. If a student is enrolled into an AP course they are not allowed to drop the course under and circumstances which can be frustrating if the student was just placed to fill space.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: Principals try to be somewhat involved with student life. Guidance counselors are helpful and upbeat. The policy about bullying is exists but is not enforced at all. Often times a student's situation with bullying is ignored. The dress code is inconsistent. It changes from year to year and seems to be enforced based upon the individual.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: Students are usually suspended as a means of punishment. Cases of bullying are only swept under the rug. The victim never receives help. Fingers crossed a student does not ever need serious immediate medical care.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: A moderate amount of the student body is involved in school sports. Based on school spirit and community involvement football receives the most attention.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: We have a variety of clubs, but FFA is the most prevalent. There are varying levels of commitment, from only attending meetings, to being an officer or being a member of a CDE team.
