    Health & Safety: I have not heard of many bullying instances, but I do know that this school is does very well at keeping the students under constant assurance that they are in a safe place and that there are places they can go to to talk to someone or to get things handled if they feel unsafe. Overall, I think this school is pretty safe, yet lenient in knowing that this is a high school, while still having trust in their students.

    Extracurriculars: The amount of extra curricular activities in this school is great. Although I never got too involved due to other responsibilities, I always knew of at least a handful of people that were always participating in something that either furthers their education or expands on their talents.

    Overall Experience: What makes this school great is the many different ways to get involved between all of the athletic events and the clubs. Many students transferred to this school due to a better atmosphere in not only the school in general, but the students are friendlier, as well as better teachers and ore fair grading and teaching styles.

    Teachers: The over all quality of the teachers is great, but the curriculum and some of the things that we are learning seem to be out of the way from what we should be learning. Having said that, many schools in comparison seem to follow after what we have been learning.

    Overall Experience: I can't really speak for the other student's parents but I do remember a large number of parent supporters at all the football games.
