High School Senior

On Teachers: I have had many teachers who genuinely care about the students and have a passion for teaching. I put "okay" though because there are many teachers who clearly hate their job and don't care about anything beyond their paycheck.

High School Senior

On Overall Experience: I'd rather go here than the other high school in town, but if I could skip the experience, I probably would.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: Many kids are into drugs. I don't feel like security is that great, because our officer, while very friendly, doesn't seem very professional and many of the ill-behaved students are buddies with him.

High School Senior

On Food: I don't get school lunch. It looks like there's generally a lot of variety, but often the food doesn't look too appealing. There is a sub shop that looks like it carries good sandwiches, though.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: The school facilities are in general very nice, as the school isn't very old. We could probably use more available technology and a greater investment by the guidance in the students.
