    Teachers: Although the many teachers take their time with their students, some seem to not. They are very knowledgeable and teach all they know. Sometimes they seem to put in grades right away, but at times seem to take longer than usual. They seem to be very interested in students lives.

    Health & Safety: This school has a great school nurse and health resources. However, it does not have very many safety measure. Really anyone could walk in to our school and more than likely no one in our school is armed.

    Extracurriculars: Athletics are widely popular within our school and the administration and staff are highly supportive of basketball, football and volleyball. However, there are also some sports like gymnastics, wrestling and soccer that don't get much support from the student body, the staff or the administration. Clubs are also available at our school, but they have to find their own funding and profits because they don't receive much support either.
