    Overall Experience: This place is terrible, mostly because no one cares unless it's football. Students are mean and very exclusive, and the teachers are mostly apathetic idiots (except for Mr. Lang)

    Overall Experience: I feel that my school has done a very good job in equiping me for the future. However, it is hard sometimes to try and achieve my goals of getting good grades when there are students in my classes who do not care at all about their grades. I obviously want to go to college and get a good job that I genuinely look forward to going to everyday and I know that in order to achieve that goal I must work hard in school and try to get good grades. Unfortunately there are some students who do not think that way. For the most part I love my school and I am very grateful for the opportunity to succeed in life because of what I am learning.
