    Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe at the school. We have a great staff of resource officers on campus everyday and they make their sure you see them and they try to include themselves in our activities as well as just patrol the school. There are drills monthly for fire and other disasters. The staff keeps up on current situations surrounding the school also.

    Extracurriculars: There are a number of sports teams to choose from as well as JROTC that offer alot of outside activities to be included in, such as fund raising and community activities. There are band, chorus, art, yearbook, student government and science clubs that offer a different aspect than sports or military. The administration seems to favor the sports teams over other activities. The "Booster Club" raises most of the money for the sports teams and has the highest parent participation in the school.

    Overall Experience: As a student athlete I have seen the effect of team life on students. Some respond very well and rise to the occasion by doing better in their academics, others fall behind and are only part of the team because they are good athletes, not good students. The coaches at the school are high pressure coaches, that need to be monitored more closely and reigned in more often. The sports teams are the highest income for the school, so other clubs and organizations seem to get left out of funding or sponsor ships from the community, due to the sports teams dominating. I have had a good experience at this school because I have always made sure I choose wisely and continue to push myself beyond what is just expected of a student here. We have great English teachers that make learning fun, and our History teachers do the same. I wish all the students could have a good high school experience as I have had.

    Teachers: There are some great teachers at my school. The get lost in the shuffle of overcrowded classrooms, unruly students and administration that doesn't support them all the time. The counselors need more time with students. There are around 1500 students in a Freshman-Senior grade high school. We have a number of teachers that give their time back after hours and are very much appreciated, we wish there were more of these for students to connect with.

    Overall Experience: The school is unique in terms of cultural diversity and athletics. However, I would not choose this school again if I could do it all over because of the disrespectful students.
