Overall, I love this school. Sports are amazing and the people are just fun and lovable. If I could do this all over again, I definitely would. Best four year of my life were spent here and I wouldn't change it for the world. Go Big Orange!!

What makes the school unique is the diversity in the school. It's not just one specific race its multiple races and we all seem to get along. I definitely wouldn't change anything about this school. The parents are great help as well. Basically, the school is like one huge community and everybody comes together.

My experience was great when it's about the athletes because the parents were very supportive and always cheered and encouraged the whole entire team not just their child. Parents were very involved.
