    Teachers: I feel as if some teachers teach on a college level to try to prepare you but just giving a student a paper and expecting them to learn isn't going to work

    Health & Safety: My school has strict safety measures. We have drills and talks on a regular basis so we will know what to do in bad times. IDs are strictly enforced and must be worn 24/7 and cameras are always monitored. Bullying is also taken very serious and is dealt with on the spot. The nurse is always there to help out if something happens along with teachers that are trained and old nurses.

    Extracurriculars: There are so many club opportunities, everyone can be involved. Sports, go above and beyond; so much commitment is involved. Everyone is so competitive, it is so much fun going to a game or event. Football games and basketball games are the most popular. Clubs also do events, like set up for homecoming and prom, which is extremely popular.

    Overall Experience: One of my favorite parts of this school is the student body bonding together. Peprallys are always so fun and something all students look forward to. What makes my school unique is that even though the teachers are strict and serious about education, they also love to have fun. I would choose to go to this school again because they prepare you for life outside of high school, which is really important.

    Teachers: The teachers at my school care about there students. They form relationships with us and genuinely care. They can answer most of the questions that are asked and if they cant, they will find it out as soon as possible. Most teachers lecture and involve group work, that way class isn't boring. They incorporate technology into lessons on a regular basis to help students use technology and work with things that they enjoy. The teachers always grade the assignments in a reasonable amount of time. Most of the time they will get it graded during that class period, if not then by the end of the day.
