    Overall Experience: My memorable experience was my 9th grade year when I won a bronze medal in fashion design for FCCLA. This school is unique because we have school spirit and school pride. I would do it all over again because I would like to change some stuff about myself and how I was in school. That way I would be prepared.

    Sports & Fitness: We have an excellent basketball and football team. Our football team won the state championship in 2011 and our lady bears we're region champs in 2015. This was their first time ever winning the region championship. When it's football time the fans love it our stadium stay full every game and when we go out of town it's the same thing. It's the same thing for basketball and any other sport. Our student body has school spirit for our sports and the faculty love it. We have high quality in our equipment and great team work when it comes to playing.
