we have the most amazing multicultural club in the whole Texas which places this school in the top of my heart because of the elements of peace.

My experience with the parents of this school, are mostly at athletic events. Since I play baseball, and did play football, I have witnessed parents and fellow students school spirit, for their school to succeed at whatever event it is.
