    Overall Experience: Our school is known as "Cy-Crack" for a reason. But it's relatively less competitive and easier to do well here so I guess that's cool

    Overall Experience: This school is unique because it has me as a student, but enough about me, our school spirit is the real deal! During a football game, our cheering students got Vine famous! How many schools can compare? I don't know. But I do know that almost everyone who attends loves our school!

    Overall Experience: High school overall i don't like, it has nothing to do with the school itself but with the people that attend it. Some are nice people but others are making my high school experience not so amazing but the school itself is just wonderful. Most teachers are willing to help you out with anything in order for you to be successful but there are 1 or 2 that I had rough relationships with. Our school is known all over the U.S. because of our school spirit and because of the 6 second video app called Vine. Our student section during the football games is one to see in person for sure.
