    Overall Experience: I was born and raised in the north so what made this school unique to me was the strong southern influence the school had. I played soccer both my junior and senior year which I really enjoyed, but the sport wasn't that popular at this school so there wasn't much support from the vast majority of the population. I wasn't a fan of high school because I had to do a lot of things I wasn't interested in and that's mostly why I wouldn't go back.

    Teachers: The faculty and staff were not horrid, but sometimes it did feel like they didn't care about the students education overall. I will say that I had a few really great educators that made up for that.
