    Overall Experience: This school is wonderful in the aspect that it is small enough to know most everyone that goes through its doors. If you want to have a respectable and cool one on one relationship with your teachers, most are willing to go out of their way to support your endeavors. Most teachers here really want you to succeed and push you to do your very best, the support is what would make me want to go back to this school.

    Teachers: The quality of some of the teachers here goes above and beyond of what is expected of them. One teacher brought my failing grade to an A by consistently helping me early in the mornings before school started. Another teacher who taught an AP science class acknowledged there was cheating in the classroom and somehow managed to ignore it. Many kids didnt earn their "real" grade while the students who refused to cheat received B's and even C's. He didnt seem to care about the academic success of his students, nor did he ever pursue giving extra help to struggling students.

    Health & Safety: Bullying is not tolerated. As we have a few fights every now and then, they are handled the best they can and are not tolerated. We have an armed school resource officer at every school. We have a school nurse at every school. I feel that this school is very safe. I have never once felt unsafe at this school. The staff help keep it this way.

    Extracurriculars: There is such a variety of extracurricular activities available to all students. It is truly amazing what all is available. We have all kinds of sports. Tons of clubs and organizations such as HOSA, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Key Club, National Honor Society, German, Spanish and French Clubs, Student Council, Newspaper, Yearbook and much more. Since there is such great teacher involvement, it makes the organizations fun and many students participate.
