On Teachers: Teachers tend to be very hit or miss. Some are very friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and professional with their student. However, there are also several teachers that don't really teach at all, are poor teachers, have low patience levels, and are even rude and inappropriate and unreasonable and unprofessional.

On Administration & Policies: The only administration aspect that is really helpful are the guidance counselors, they are helpful in their area of knowledge. The principle and administrators, however, do little to help the students and will listen to complaints and concerns, but not really act upon them or take any measures to find the root of a problem. This is especially true when it comes to concerns regarding teachers. Admin won't do anything even if various students express concern regarding a specific teacher.

On Resources & Facilities: Probably one of the best aspects of resources and facilities are the guidance counselors and college prep resources. The guidance counselors are for the most part extremely helpful, are attentive to specific students and their needs, and are very knowledgeable about everything. There is also a College and Career Center in the Guidance Office. There students can find numerous resources such as scholarships and informational packages about specific schools and their requirements and deadlines. The College Club also provides a lot of helpful activities that are fun and get underclassmen thinking about college in a timely manner.

On Health & Safety: The health and safety policies are great, but a policy is only words on a paper/ website if it isn't backed by actions. I mostly say this in regards to the issue of bullying and even unprofessional teacher behavior at times. The school does little to investigate complains from student regarding other students or teachers.

On Academics: My school has constantly been an A school, providing some of the best academic levels in the county.
