    Educational Outcomes: I just graduated in May. I have been trying to train and keep my game of baseball going. I am going to Spring Arbor to play baseball and to become a teacher. I feel my parents have done a great deal to help prepare me for the real world as well as my school.

    Extracurriculars: Most of the club activities take place during lunch. (Such as yearbook and national junior honor society) Practices for sporting events take place after school.

    Academics: Last year we went to a 7 hour day. This makes it really difficult on your workload when you have 3 or 4 exams scheduled the same day, and play sports. The curriculum can be very tough. There are teachers that are very caring and there are teachers that probably should not be teaching. I think that is the case no matter where you go. When teaching curriculum teachers need to test on what they teach.
