    Overall Experience: I quite liked the school and wished that I had went there from the start of my high school journey. Upon starting there in the 10th grade I initially had 0 friends. It was rather hard at first but eventually I made enough friends to say that I enjoyed my time at the school. I do wish I had been more active in activites however and I recommend anyone that chooses to attend this school to get involved. Most of the teachers are great and helpful and from my experience the kids aren't too bad either.

    Overall Experience: Overall, I did enjoy my time at this school. It definitely provided me with many learning opportunities in the classroom but also opportunities to grow as a person. As I'm sure it is at every high school though, there were some interactions with students and even parents believe it or not that were either needed to grow as a person or just straight up inappropriate. The school's security is somewhat decent but they need to have a little bit more control of what happens in the parking lots before and after school. The administration was great for the most part, but the counselors are the main downfall of this school. They provide zero help and when they actually do, they are extremely rude an unwelcoming for both students and parents. Also, a few select teachers are a little bit too interested in teaching their own personal opinions rather than the actual facts that the students are there to learn.
