The school experience at this school was overall great to me despite some of the teachers. I have had some teachers that weren't the best, but I have had teachers that put their all into helping me succeed. My favorite experience was being in fourth period my senior year of high school. I had a teacher who was full of life, and I always experienced something new in her class. Also the school events were my favorite experiences from the drama productions to the basketball games. The school is unique because it's a school of the arts, and it's always a good show that is put on.

My overall experience so far is okay, we have our good days where everyone gets along such as pep rallies and dances. I would do it all over again but, with my principal I had my 9th grade year because he was my elementary school principal as well. My school has had a new principal every year of my high school years and after the first year, the school hasn't been the same.
