On Extracurriculars: My friends and I always mace much to do after school, I stuck with tennis as that pretty much was my entire after school during the season. The rest of the year was visiting different clubs with various friends, they even have a gamers club!!

On Academics: I find that if you pay attention in class and do homework , success! The scheduling process is no overwhelming, in fact quite manageable. The curriculum is quite rigorous but manageable in at least in my opinion.

On Resources & Facilities: I was able to earn college credits while in school! The resources are available to each and every student; you just have to take advantage of it. I spent many hours with the guidance counselor, planning for college and never once did I feel rushed or pressured. Paying for college will be difficult as my parents paid for this high school and their resources are limited and my dad is looking to retire soon, but as my mom says " where there is a will, there is a way"

On Overall Experience: Choosing this school 4 years has to be the best decision I have made to date. The experience has served me well. From Tennis to goofing off on the basket ball courts I have always felt at home, safe in the knowledge that I have a whole school body behind me. Even the way the kids linger after school, not wanting to break the connection,
