    Overall Experience: I cant think of a better school year for me to have. I was a football trainer, i made JV soccer, and varsity track. I was in key club and made top 15 in my grade. My teachers have been amazing and fun. I've learned a lot academically and street wise too, but nothing bad. the student body is fun and close, so there's really no one you don't know, which makes it better since its more like a family.

    Health & Safety: I think this school is very safe. Although we have one armed security guard, i think that there is about 8 or more of them. I have never been to the nurse, but she seems to be involved. I've never been bullied or bullied someone, but i have seen it, but nothing serious so far. Besides the teachers had taken care of it.
