    Overall Experience: i feel the teachers who do enforce the rules are not supported by the administration. teachers should do a better job of supporting students who may struggle to make sure they get the needed help to pass the class.

    Overall Experience: For the most time I enjoyed the time I spent at this school with my friends. I took a few classes that I really liked like Psychology and Yearbook. Some of the teachers are very helpful but a majority of the teachers could careless if you pass or fail. I would not want my kids to go to this school if I was given an option.
