This school has something for every student. I would go to this school all over again and if given the chance I would like my future children to there as well.

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.

Even though this school drove me absolutely CRAZY I wouldn't trade it for the world I have very good friends at and from this school I met my current boyfriend of 3 years here I was able to be apart of a cheer family that I love very dearly we won state not as a team but as a family I made great bonds with teachers and it got me where I am today. If I can make it out of this "jungle" alive so can you
