On Overall Experience: I like this school because it is easy to get to know the people and the teachers. Students are friendly. I enjoyed playing sports here even though we did not have a good football or basketball coaching staff.

On Sports & Fitness: We have good athletic facilities. We need a better coaching staff that would encourage students to participate in sports. Our athletic programs are not very competitive and this could be because coaches play favorite kids or kids whose parents are big booster club donors. It is not a fair atmosphere and kids who are athletic refuse to play because of this.

On Resources & Facilities: We have a nice building. Good technology and college prep resources. Tutoring is available.

On Teachers: Some of the teachers are really good and present the material in a way that you can understand it. Some of the teachers have good teaching skills and can make the material interesting and some are just boring.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: Our principal is very involved with what happens in the school as well as extracurricular activities. The staff does not tolerate bullying or any negative behavior especially anything that puts other students at risk of being hurt.
