    Extracurriculars: The school leaves very open gates in many areas with numerous amounts of staff be it, student or teacher willing to help. The catch is most of personal choice leaves the clubs underwhelming. The chess club had a great leader and commitment yet rarely the same people showed up back to back days. The club leaders and staff are amazing ,but the club kids were sometimes lazy if not wanting to be somewhere else.

    Overall Experience: Well... The activities and events left a lasting impression. The events people voluntary go to are the best yet required prep assemblies are straining at times. The school is orientated as an outside school. Most of the school has doors facing outside than just a hallway. Which makes school feel less like of a prisom

    Teachers: The teachers vary, some are magnificent help and understanding. Other suffer from a lack of quality. The teacher could give out some of the most accurate information on whiteboard, yet the verbal explanation falls short and vice versa. Personality wise, most teachers left their mark for the year. Being completely calm and collected or loud and eccentric ( Those kept me awake) which had a good balance of control for the classroom.

    Extracurriculars: I enjoy my extra curricular opportunities. I have a passion for creating the yearbook. I am in National Honors Society, in which i am surrounded by those with the same goals as me. I am involved in Raider Nation, where I can show my school spirit and pride. I also am in Interact, where i can volunteer form community.

    Overall Experience: I understand that there is no perfect High School in existence. However, I do believe their is more this school could do to not only better the experience of the student, but to better the education of the student body as a whole.
