    Extracurriculars: The school's band is really good, and it's a very tight-knitted group of people, who all get along together. The school has the National Honor Society, which is relatively easy to get into, and the students are given lots of opportunities to volunteer in the community. There's an upcoming club, called World Food, which is amazing. It's a relatively small club, because it was created this year, but the members are super caring and sweet, and they try hard to raise money through a bunch of unique ways.

    Overall Experience: I would go to these school again, because of the people that I've encountered. The school is very diverse and you meet so many different people. There's a lot of school pride here too.

    Teachers: There's a handful of teachers that really strive to find a way to effectively teach the students, so that we can understand it easily. There are a few teachers that rely solely on power points and textbooks during class, so students are unable to fully understand the material from the limited sources.

    Overall Experience: There may be some parent involvement, however, most students here are almost ready for gradation and don't need their parents to be following them around all the time. Band Parents rock, though.
