    Overall Experience: I love everything about this school because the school built my personality to becoming successful with anything I achieve! My favorite experience was becoming the drum major for the Mighty Marching Rattler Band!

    Overall Experience: Its okay if you participate in some type of extra curricular activity, but if not its pretty boring. And the discipline is horrible

    Administration & Policies: The administrators have come up with a new bell to let the students know one minute before they are considered late, and if you are caught in the hallway without the correct documentation then you can be suspended.
