    Overall Experience: My high school career was good and worth the experience. The school was on top of a hill that over looked the valley and always had a great view of the mountains, sunrise and sunset.

    Extracurriculars: There were many different clubs at my school. Many were to help govern the school like SGA, or to help the community in some way like key club and green club. There was a good variety so everyone had the possibility of fitting in somewhere.
