For every bad teacher you might have, there is a truly amazing teacher who will reignite the will to learn within you. The students are honestly what makes the school so great: most are committed to the betterment of the school and student body. I love that art is displayed in every open space. Our sports are pretty good, our clubs are excellent. The only thing we need is to stress less and receive more funding.

I've seen parents at almost every gathering I've been too, they help with the dances and events. I often see the PTO board talk with the teachers and the principals. In fact, they voice themselves at several gatherings where all the students are to talk about our life at school and how it affects us.
