The administrations office is good and are always willing to help students from school work to other issues they are having. They try to keep everyone safe and have a good educational experience.

My experience at this school is the best I could have hoped for. If you have any problem the counselors, administrators, and/or teachers make it their responsibility to help as much as they possibly can.

The students really do make the school. At this one, majority of them just don't care and that rubs off onto other people, including the incoming freshmen. It's a cycle of apathy in terms of school spirit that makes the whole thing decidedly underwhelming. However, once you find your own niche, your slice of the school with people similar to you, that's when things get fun. There, people aren't feeling like they have to hide their enthusiasm for what they're doing. For me, this was enrolling in yearbook. Best decision I've made, best people I've met, and the most gratifying end result of an entirely student made book.
