    Overall Experience: I started here my junior year and definitely felt like it was different than other high schools. There is a lot of freedom and has more of a college feel. The course load is pretty heavy in my opinion with teachers expecting a lot. But I have fun. I wish there was more school spirit though.

    Teachers: Most teachers are very welcoming and eager to teach and help. I have a good relationship with most of my teachers, but since some classes have students with a wide variety of ways of learning, not all students get the attention/challenges he or she needs.

    Extracurriculars: I wish the theater department were better. I often do theater outside of school theater. Sports teams are great!

    Overall Experience: I love the music department the most. While the students aren't completely welcoming, the teachers are lovely and I wish more parents would support their programs.

    Teachers: Most teachers are excellent at their job, but a few seem to be trained as engineers/scientists etc but not actual teachers of the material. I would like to see improvement on teacher patience with students who suffer from emotional trauma.
