On Extracurriculars: I think the after school help from teachers is great. Many of my teachers have provided me with after school tutoring. Mi really took advantage of help from my math teacher. I believe that it really helped me and other students out.

On Sports & Fitness: I think our school spirit is good. A lot of people come out for the football games and we have a lot of pride for our team. The games are always exciting and thrilling. However I think that we need more school spirit in other sports.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The counselors have been very helpful in guiding me through highschool. Whenever i have a problem, my counselor is more than willing to help out. However I think rules in the dress code are stupid. Girls are not allowed to wear spaghetti straps or have their bra straps showing. This is dumb because I don't think a shoulder showing is bad and all girls wear bras so I don't see the problem.

On Overall Experience: I think that the football games are my favorite experiences because everything about it is so exciting and I love the vibe they give off. The students show a lot of school spirit and it helps that the team is very good. They always make the game exciting.

On Food: The cafeteria doesn't have a good variety of food. I feel that I eat the same stuff every day and it gets boring. They also give relatively small amounts of food which does not feel the average person up. The food is somewhat healthy but it really depends on what you get.
