  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I have been going here all 3 years, so far [Junior, 11th grade], and I would like to say how much I love it here. I did not notice this until I was forced to move schools for my senior year. The teachers and principals are great and a ton of fun to be around, they are disciplinary when they need to be and have a sense of humor when needed as well.
    We have a ton of funny activities which are different every year, and a bunch of clubs that make before and after school interesting. I have to admit our football team is not the best..but we have some dedicated players. :]
