    Overall Experience: I'm not very fond with some people who attend this high school. I'm not a fan of students who stand in the middle of the hallway when it's time to switch classes. I feel like there should be more control over students for moving efficiently to different classes. The students at my school can be rude in the hallways or even in assembly's. I just feel like there needs to be more respect towards teachers and to other students in the school. I wish our classes would have more of a variety of different people, so we could get to know more people. That is, concerning our diploma type.
