    Sports & Fitness: OUR CAMPUS IS VERY OLD AND DOES NOT HAVE MUCH SPACE FOR BIG AND FANCY FIELDS. STUDENTS BWLIEVE THAT THE SPORTS ARE NOT COMPETITIVE ENOUGH SO THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO TRY OUT. MOST FANS ARE PARENTS OR STUDENTS MANDATED TO ATTEND THE GAMES. SCHOOL SPIRIT IS REMOTELY NOT GOOD BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OF THE SCHOOL. THERE ARE FEW ATHLETIC FACILITIES AND FITNESS PROGRAMS BECAUSE OF OUR SIZE OF STUDENTS AND SCHOOL.

    Teachers: THE TEACHERS HAVE VERY DISTINCT TEACHING METHODS, AND SOME ARE MORE ENGAGING IN OTHERS. A FEW HAVE THEIR FAVORITES, BUT THEY DO EXIST. MANY HAVE ATTENDED LOCAL COLLEGES AND COMPETITIVE ONES SO THEY PUSH THEIR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE MORE. MANY ARE APPROACHABLE BUT FEW ARE RUDE. MANY DO NOT KEEP UP TO DATE WITH GRADING AND ENTERING GRADES IN THE GRADE BOOS, BUT US STUDENTS REMIND THEM TO ON A DAILY BASIS

    Extracurriculars: THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT THIS SCHOOL, I WISH MORE STUDENTS WERE AWARE OF THIS, BUT THEY THINK THAT SCHOOL SUCKS. I AM INVOLVED IN SOME OF THE BIGGEST ORGANIZATIONS IN MY SCHOOL AND I GET STUDENTS TO ATTEND EVENTS AND HELP UNDERCLASSMEN. I LOVE MY SCHOOL AND THINK THAT EVERYONE WOULD BE HAPPIER IF THEY WERE INVOLVED.

    Administration & Policies: Some teachers and faculty are absolutely outstanding. They listen to you, respect you, and help you with whatever you need. But there are some who are not always respectful or listen to the students.

    Overall Experience: What makes this school unique is how long it has been around and how it does just as good in academics and sports as its neighboring brand new schools. There are so many different personalities at this school and I am glad that I am a part of it.
