    Teachers: My personal experience was fantastic at this high school but for the students overall i feel like it could be better for others. The teachers are semi reserved and could be more sociable with the students. The interaction with the students isn't all that great either. Personally i feel like the teachers should involve themselves with the teaching of the students because it allows learning to be easier for the students.

    Academics: I think that there are alot of opportunities for special study opportunities, but I wish they were more publicized. Most class curriculums are alright although, I wish we had more projects and opportunities to apply our knowledge in real world situations.
