I rate my school as great! The teachers are friendly and approachable and have a positive atitude on campus. There is always room for improvement in anything and some teachers are better than others, but overall the and students have a great realationship with their teachers. I have emailed my teachers on weekends, went in during lunch or after school and feel they are caring and helpful whenever possible. I did not rate my school the greatest because i don't know how to compare it to other schools teaching style, but i do know i'm happy with my teachers. My history teacher helped me overcome my fear of speaking in front of people. Several of my teachers have even come out to my games to give support. I feel thankful for such a knowlegedeable, approachable and supportive teaching staff.

My experience at my school has been the best! I love my teachers, principals and couselors. They are all very positive, approachable and supportive and together make a good team. They are good role models and helpful which encouraged me to be involved any way i can. This year I served as ASB VP and next year I will be the ASB President. I push myself to be better because they care enough to encourage us to do better!
