    Teachers: I have always been able to reach out to a teacher when I found the classwork to be confusing. They are all very kind and approachable.

    Health & Safety: There is a no tolerance policy for bullying but it still happens around school. I personally feels safe while I'm at school but I have heard stories of our security guards not being very good. Any person that looks like a student can just walk through the doors with out being questioned. We do have a fair amount of fights but its nothing that I'm ever afraid of. We do have a nurses office not everyone knows where it is and I've only been there twice in my entire time in high school and neither time was it a pleasant experience and I've heard other students say they don't like it and will just have their parents call them home sick than go to the health office.

    Extracurriculars: There is an abundant amount of clubs for students to choose from. They range from musical and artistic clubs to student council, Yearbook, Medical Clubs, Theater, Teaching, guitar club and so many others. In most clubs the commitment is very high, the students love the clubs and want to stay in them. HOSA is very popular at out school and it is great for students interested in the medical field or just want to have fun and be around great people. Student council has a lot of administration support. DECA is also very popular at our school for students interested in Business.

    Teachers: The teachers at this school are pretty great. Most of them have a high interest in their jobs and truly love helping students. There is certain teachers that go above and beyond to make learning a fun experience for students but there is also a few that just kind of do what ever they want and aren't consistent in grading.
