I believe that the school was not great in terms of academic achievement, but not necessarily poor, either. Something that I enjoyed about the school was that I felt there were a wide range of class options available; from AP and Honors STEM courses to wind ensembles to courses on graphic and video game design, and many things in between. I felt that the teachers were also of decent quality as well. However, the overall feel and air of the school was somewhat apathetic. There wasn't much stress on the students to work particularly hard, and many of the students didn't seem to interested in being involved in multiple subjects, so it felt like most students just simply "went with the flow" of life. Of course, there were some outliers, but the majority of students didn't seem very concerned with high academic achievement, which affected how well or how poorly we were able to push each other to achieve individual academic success.
