1
High School Senior

On Health & Safety: The nurse is incapable and has no idea what she is doing, the anatomy and health teachers would be more useful in helping you than her.

3
High School Senior

On Overall Experience: Good classes, terrible counselors. Teachers are hit and miss but most want their students to succeed.

2
High School Senior

On Food: Food has very little change, every two week rotation. Mostly bad quality of food and the other meal options are limited

3
High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: There are mostly Caucasians and Asians, very few African-Americans and Hispanics.

3
High School Senior

On Teachers: the teaching staff is Not the most consistent usually ranging from an excellent teacher to one who only comes to school for the paycheck. The honors and AP teachers are as a whole quite good, and really want their students to succeed and help as much as possible prior to the AP Tests
