    Overall Experience: We're a very community based school. Some bad qualities and some good. But what makes us the best is our love and pride for our school that not many other schools have.

    Overall Experience: I am very appreciative of my teachers, as I stated before I feel they are unappreciated and underpaid. I dislike the lack of promotion of the performing/fine arts.

    Academics: Many of the teachers are affective and prepare you for college. For example, I took AP Chemistry which Coach Listort and while he is the only teacher who teaches AP Chemistry he's one of the greatest teachers that I've ever add. In addition, if you're on the edge about taking Calculus, you should because the only teacher who teaches is Dr. Tachon and she is GREAT, if you pay attention and do all of the homework you're guaranteed at least a 3 on the AP Calculus AB or BC exams. The most popular AP classes are AP Psychology and Ap Lit because of their simplicity and the teachers. The workload of some AP's aren't bad. Ap Chem for example doesnt have a lot of homework but with AP Calculus there is homework everyday.
