Some teachers care while others do not. Those teachers who care go above and beyond to help students outside of class and be engaged in lessons as well as help students learn the information even if that means they have to teach in several different methods. The teachers who do not tend to be hateful, lazy, & unproductive. They teach in one way and are never open to other ideas or students preferences.

The schools most popular activities are sports, band, and theatre. There aren't a lot of clubs or organizations available to students. The administration support is not very ideal; however, there are some administers who take more pride in their jobs than others. Their aren't many after school activities other than sports, band, and theatre events. Overall the school extracurricular activities don't compare well with that of other schools in the area.

The school was built in 1964 and just celebrated it's 50-year anniversary. The counselors are helpful, especially with seniors seeking scholarships. The technology department includes drafting, technical drawing, ag, and traditional shop classes. Also, there is a science and technology center that provides certifications for students in auto body, auto mechanics, cosmetology, construction, electricity, early childhood development, and even future teachers of America. There are also intern programs in forestry, science, healthcare, and veterinary science. Students work with counselors to get into these and other community-based business internships.
