Our school principal is great really puts himself out there with the students. There is a lot of drama as most high schools have. There is some bullying but it usually consists of people in the same friend group. Social media has a great impact on hurting others. The classes that are offered at the school vary so much that students are able to try so many different things. The athletic department has great influence on students and encourages all to join. In my past experiences, the teachers really want you to succeed and will help the student succeed if they see they are struggling. For example, I was struggling with Chemistry and I needed another science class to graduate and my teacher had set me up in another class that our school offers and get the science credit it that way. In all, it was my decision to stay and struggle and work harder or go in the other class. There are so many art classes and electives that if you do one year, you are able to continue to the next level. Our school provided the students with laptop which made things easier for the students and if the student was absent from school, it was easy access to what was missed.

At this school, the pressure is unbelievable. Most of the parents I know are always nagging their child about their grades, they have to get all straight A's or they will end up in huge trouble. The same goes for athletics. You have to be the very best or you're considered "bad". It doesn't seem like there are any opportunities to mess up or make a mistake and if you do, it doesn't go well. The parents also set a bad example in ways that are more socially economic, and wouldn't be considered normal.

If you find your passions and take the right classes you will have a great time here. The school itself overall is a really great school, and the majority of graduates do great things in their adult lives. The only issue is while you are attending, you don't feel like you will ever get out of here, and that the future is very very distant. I think the school spirit is there, and the athletics are amazing. I found my sport, rowing, and have loved it my entire time here.
