    Student Culture & Diversity: This school is very diverse within its students. Students are very accepting of whatever sexual orientation another student chooses. Racial problems isn't a big issue either, here at this school every student is looked at for what they are, a student.

    Extracurriculars: The school is just now getting a lot of new extracurricular activities so they are not the most organized at the most however if given some time then the clubs would do and be great. With all the new extracurricular activities added the school has been very supporting and the number of students that were not in extracurricular activities verses now have increased.

    Overall Experience: My best experience at this school was marching band. To meet all these new people at once that were so friendly to one another like a family was a great feeling to have especially as a freshmen. Coming into highschool on the first day of school and already knowing almost 300 people makes meeting more people seem so easy than coming to high-school on the first day and only knowing a few. My favorite part of being part of the marching band was the football games. Waking up early on a Friday just to get to school early for a prep rally to pump up our school spirit. Then around 7 o'clock when the sunsets, the game begins and our school goes wild with spirit for our boys on the field.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers that I have had over the years in high school listen to the students ideas and incorporate it into the next lesson. Even if it wasn't the exact topic we were discussing in the classroom, they would still try to pull in the similarities between the two so that the students could understand better. If there was ever a time needed were a student just needed to talk, whether it be personally or academically the teachers had their doors open.
