    Extracurriculars: The basketball teams always has the school with good energy whether the team wins or loses the game. Also the drama productions always give a good laugh, and the opportunity to be out of class for up to two hours. Both the games from the basketball teams both girl and boys, and the drama productions gave everyone hype and also something to enjoy.

    Overall Experience: 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.

    Teachers: It's okay because certain teachers put their all into helping all students. You do have some teachers who just go with the flow, and don't try to help. The teachers that do help have after school tutoring sections. They also have one on one talks to try to keep students on track.
