High School Senior

On Health & Safety: There are plenty of safety measures in place, certainly enough to make me feel secure. The school nurse is rude and condescending but she gets the job done.

On Teachers: I generally only take AP and honors courses with mostly music electives but from my experience, most of the teachers are very good at their jobs and help students as well as they can while still expecting that the students put in out of class work.

On Resources & Facilities: There is tutoring offered in the tower time room during most hours and there is tutoring offered every day after school. The tutoring room is also a computer lab to help with online coursework. Laptop carts are shared for classes in case of online in-class assignments.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: There are TONS of options for getting involved! There are clubs and activities for everyone. It's really easy to get involved if you really want to. There are plays each quarter, musical ensembles or sport teams for players of all levels, there is after-school tutoring every day, chess club, anime club, math club, anything you could possibly want! And if we don't have it already, you can get a teacher sponsor and talk to the administration and start it, I've been a founding member of 2 clubs, this year alone!

On Academics: Very wide variety of class options to broaden education experience. Plenty of opportunities to get extra one-on-one help in courses.
