    Academics: There are not many academic offers. Especially for Senior who are graduating and willing to move to the next level in school. Or even people who just want to get a job after school. The classes you choose to help prepare you for your course of study in college the are very hard to get into simply because student help teachers do not take the time out to help you get into those classes and prepare you for college with college information. Its basically like you have to do everything on your own. Many classes you believe will prepare you for your major in college do not help at all either. So its really a lose win situation.

    Sports & Fitness: not that many people are involved, not many people participate or try to join a team. We don't have many fan support especially any of the girls teams. Its harder to get people to come to the games to actually get people to make the team.

    Overall Experience: Not the best school, it could be better. But I don't let the name of the school and its reputation not allow me to become and achieve what I want to be.

    Teachers: The teachers don't seem to really care about the students. Some care but not all

    Teachers: The teachers at the school, overall have been great. When I had concerns, they responded well to me. They were innovative in their teaching and their communication on what was expected from the students was well understood.
