    Extracurriculars: I love to be on the swim team and i love my coach. He helps a lot and encourages us to the maximum. When i need to ask him a question or something he is there to answer it and if he cant he will direct me to someone who can help me.

    Overall Experience: Overall I love this school, there are many things possible for us to be involved in and the teachers are great. We get a lot of help for staff and mostly senior year during the college season. We have enough supplies for all but would need a class set of books and a home set.
