    Extracurriculars: There are many clubs and activities to participate in after school, ranging from serious and academic to fun and social. There are some clubs that get recognition and the club that supports MAD week is especially important. The athletic are also very high quality, but expensive.

    Teachers: Many of the teachers have extensive knowledge in not only their subject but others as well. They are all very devoted to helping the students whenever possible and are able to connect the topic with real world examples or current events. Many teachers also relate to the students, dressing up for spirit week and really showing school spirit.
