If I could do it all over again I would chose to go to a school with better teachers. The expirences at my school are nothing special.

My experience at this school has been great. Overall, it is a very friendly environment. The teachers work hard and the students work even harder. I love school wide events that bring all of the student body together. For example, homecoming pepfest always brings the student body closer. I would choose this school again because it is generally a wonderful environment to further my education in.

I think what makes the school unique is how much most teachers and students care about learning and growing. There are some students how make the learning experience hard, which is why I don't think the school is perfect.
