    Extracurriculars: Athletic boosters and music boosters get excellent administration support. SADD and FCA are the clubs with the biggest student popularity. The drama club has been gaining ground in the last few years.

    Teachers: There are some extremely excellent teachers and some extremely qualified teachers. As with any school, we do have a sprinkling of teachers that do not TEACH well. Our math area lacks extremely and our science area is only good for the students that are highly intellectual based on the teacher's inability to pass on her knowledge in a way that average students can understand.

    Health & Safety: The school is connected with the hospital for extremely cheap physicals yearly. A school nurse ensures updated immunization records. Physical safety is a main concern and updates to school doors along with regular practice runs for students (in case of intruder) help students feel protected.

    Overall Experience: This school is a safe place to learn. If you are a way above average or way below average student they will engage with you and help you. For average students, they are left on their own. Athletics are very important to the school. The administration is fair and polite.
