High School Senior

On Teachers: Because I take concurrent classes at our community college, I am only taking two upper level courses at the high school campus. Both of my teachers are more than helpful and are truly concerned about my success in their class. They both have tutor sessions on weekends at the school at no charge. They are great. As for the other teachers, I can't say.

On Resources & Facilities: We have a good ACT prep program in the spring and early summer. We have several teachers that go above and beyond to try to help students by having weekend tutoring sessions and they are always available in mornings and afternoons. Our counselors are less than desirable; not much help at all.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: It's all about football and basketball at our school. The girls teams, volleyball and softball, and the boys baseball and soccer teams have no administrative or fan support. There aren't any announcements about upcoming games, there is no coverage or pictures in the newspaper. They almost act like these programs are a nuisance more than anything. It is sad because we have a lot of talented athletes that could go on to play in college but these programs are not promoted, so they are not noticed by recruiters.
