Overall, my four years here were a blast! I enjoyed taking AP courses and participating in a variety of different extra curricular activities. The teachers are very good for the most part. I would have liked to see more technology classes, though, especially since they through a MacBook at me my senior year that I had no idea how to use. One semester my freshman year did not prepare me for college at all.

As a transgender and pansexual person, I attract a lot of glares and some harassment and comments from other students. Most if not all of the teachers are friendly, helpful, and very inclusive. The students... not so much. Even though I have a close knit group of friends, there aren't a lot of friendly, welcoming clubs and extracurriculars (though the Drama Club is practically a family, and there is a diversity club up and coming.)

Pep rallys are my absolute favorite! They are very spirited and the teachers know how to get everyone engaged There is a competition against all the classes and the loudest/most spirited wins! Definitely my favorite high school experiences.
