On Overall Experience: I involve myself in the activities that I love like cheerleading, FEA, NHS, and pep rallies.The worst part about this school is the people who don't have spirit and are unmotivated. They bring everyone else done. Because of this, I would have loved to go to a bigger school with more student involvement

On Food: The lunch room provides a pasta bar, sandwiches, burritos, nachos, salads, and one main course each day.

On Teachers: Some teachers are hardworking. They will come in at 7 and leave at 5 just to help students. While others won't even let you ask a question during lunch. Some teachers grade hard while others just skim through your work and put a grade on it.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: Our guidance counselors set up programs to help students who fight/have problems at home. Other than that, we don't have anyone who really helps troublesome students (that i know of). Bad attendance has many punishments, as well as tardies. They were strict on dress code at the beginning of the year but not anymore.
