I absolutely love my high school! There is such a great atmosphere that is so welcoming. We have the best principal a school could ask for, along with fantastic staff. They're all so concerned about their students and lead their lives as positive role models for all around them. I know when I am preparing to come to school, I will always walk in to staff with smiles on their faces and my principal asking me how I'm doing that day. It's so comforting and something I will miss so much when I head off to college next year!

Most teachers are really great.

Many are available before school, during lunch, or after school and are able to be reached via email (and some via text if you have them for a club or activity).

Some teachers will really go above and beyond when it comes to helping students, especially if the student reaches out (for some teachers, ONLY if the student reaches out).

Some teachers do only teach via worksheets, or pointless PowerPoints.

Some teachers, when approached, are very condescending (Barbre), while others like (LOVE) to start debates (Conner).

Some teachers are on their phones THE WHOLE TIME.

Some teachers are disrespectful to students who are less than "high achievers."

Some teachers are very kind, and will establish real relationships (not the creepy kind) with students.

Some teachers are VERY passionate about what they do.

Some teachers will give real advise and talk about things, that may or may not pertain to class, that are helpful and relevant for life, the real world, or just other classes.

Some teachers are just great to be around.

I believe that I am one of the most active people at my school.

I am currently a part of Band, Drama Club, Thespian Society, Key Club, Student Council, Math Team, Science Club, W.Y.S.E. Team, Business Team, National Honor Society, ACT Prep. Squad, Friends of M.H.I.N.D.S., and Book Club.

In the past I have been involved with Class Officer, Track, and Student Advisory Committee.

Club that I am not in currently are: Class Officer, Maroon Platoon (Pep Squad), any kind of sport.

The Drama Club and the Thespian Society are more-or-less one in the same, with the only difference being that there aren't any freshman or new Drama kids in the Thespians (as you have to have at least 10 [or is it 20] "Thespian Points" [which you get by being involved and participating and helping out] and help out with at least two plays).

The worst part about this school is that it is very sports-oriented (especially when it comes to Football and Basketball [boys, of course, 'cause sexism]).

I feel that the arts, especially Band (which plays at every home Football and Basketball game [boys, obviously]) is underfunded, underappreciated, and disrespected.

For the plays, most kids feel like they are too "cool" to participate or even attend (despite the fact that the Drama Club is the most fun, along with Band).

Many kids don't get involved with any kind of clubs or activities, for one reason or another.

Some teachers are REALLY SUPER supportive of clubs and such (whether it's actively helping out or simply just attending events) (Mrs. Driscoll/Bickett is the shining star), some are very supportive, some are just okay, and other teachers are very unsupportive (unless it's sports).
