    Academics: This all depends on where you are coming from. For me I've had a decent experience with teachers. I had the best teacher I have ever had in an AP class, and I had a great Pre-Calculus teacher, but on other instances my teachers were either lazy or just didn't know how to properly teach a class. For the most part, there are good teachers, a strong workload, a smooth scheduling process.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Everyone at this school is very friendly and welcoming. Nobody gets bullied for the color of their skin, for their sexual preference, for their religion, etc.

    Overall Experience: One of the reasons we have so many rules is because of teacher-administration disagreements. On top of that, there's also parents that have no care whatsoever for their student's success in the classroom. The parents that generally do care are the parents of students that take more rigorous courses. At athletic events, there are always a good amount of parents.

    Teachers: I've had some above and beyond teachers and some very average teachers that didn't think about they impact they have on their students but instead took it as more of a job.
