    Overall Experience: I don't really know, because I'm not super involved with any of the parents, but I do know they attend pretty much everything they are asked to.

    Teachers: Some of the teachers are pretty amazing and try hard, but some don't really care about teaching or the students. I would say more care than don't, but it is about 60-40.

    Overall Experience: I just loved high school. For the most part, I loved my teachers and I definitely loved my friends. The football games were always one of my favorite parts of the fall.

    Teachers: There are some teachers that are absolutely amazing, and they could definitely be doing bigger things than just being high school teachers. However, they love their jobs and students, and that's all I could ask for in a teacher.
