On Academics: college prep was very important at this school. Some teachers care a bunch, others didn't seem like they did.

On Food: there was a salad bar as a choice and then an hot food line.

On Sports & Fitness: There was lots of school spirit and the athletic teams were accepting of new team members. Our school supplied bus transportation and food for athletes when they traveled. we did see the boys basketball and football getting special treatment compared to the other sports but that is the way it goes many times.

On Resources & Facilities: there were several college prep classes available. guidance counselors were extremely busy and the guidance secretaries were hard to work with. they were very moody and you had to get passed them to see your counselor. some counselors are definitely better than others. Mine was good but the one I had freshmen year was never available and my mom had to take my troubles to the principal to get action.
