On Teachers: Most of my teachers have been great, caring, and very helpful. I have only had a few horrible teachers.

On Health & Safety: The security used to be mostly lax, but they are enforcing rules more and more. It is ok right now, but it is slowly getting better.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: College prep resources were really good. Starting your junior year, they always kept you informed on what we should be doing. Also, they even added in FREE ACT prep classes!
