    Overall Experience: Our school is sought after by most students in the district, because we are an Arts Magnet school. Even though the school is designed to facilitate the performing and visual arts, funding is constantly taken away to fund the failing but revered sports program. I am a huge supporter of our athletics program, but the interest taken by students for the sports is dwarfed by the interest in the fine arts. This missing funding makes it incredibly difficult to maintain and repair our equipment, even to the point where I play on a 25 year old saxophone that is in a constant state of repair. Visual arts classes are being cut because we don't have the money to run them. Without these opportunities, the blood and soul of the school will disappear, making the Arts Magnet title obsolete.
