    Overall Experience: I feel that this school is great for many different reasons. Many of the people are friendly and I was in the international baccalaureate program which meant that I was surrounded by students who cared about their futures as much as I care about mine which was great. Another thing is that I loved 6/7 of my teachers. Reason being is that all the other teachers were serious, had our best interest in mind and did their jobs effectively, while the other one wasn't as serious or good at her job as he others. The cleaning crew was friendly and always smiled, the food was okay.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school was pretty good I would say. I say it's good because I made it good, I wasn't involved in any fights that happened in the lunch room, I wasn't the kid bullying other kids just cause they were reading a book. I have my own group of friends and none of them are involved in those type of things. My group of friends were known as the "soccer crew" because most of us played on the varsity soccer team and yeah some would try to pick on us but we just let it slide and not get involved in that. I would choose this school again because in general education which was why I was there, I had the help I needed to pass my classes

    Overall Experience: I enjoyed the school spirit that everyone has but the staff lacks teachers who actually care about their students and want to see them become successful. There was a few teachers who didnt care about failing students because they didnt like them.
