    Overall Experience: I've loved my high school experience. I've had the most fantastic teachers who care about my education as well as my personal growth and development. I've had many opportunities to participate in sports, orchestra, and student leadership. But most of all I've met the most amazing people. Each student is incredible and has contributed positively to my high school experience.

    Administration & Policies: We have very nice principals. They just get a little over zealous when it comes to dress code violations. Their interuptions in classes are often far more distracting than the person breaking the dress code's attire.

    Sports & Fitness: Some sports are favored over others, so those facilities are a little bit nicer than the others

    Teachers: All go above and beyond their call! Many stay after school to help students. They are kind and want to be their students friends as well as their mentors.

    Extracurriculars: It's a smaller school so there are lot of opportunities for people to become involved with little competition.
