  • Principal - At the time I was there he was ok, but I didn't really know him that well.

    Staff - Out of four years at this school there is only 1 teacher that went above and beyond to help her students. Sadly she quite teaching my last year in HS.

    Overall - I don't think this school has what it takes to prepare its students for collage. I've just started some collage classes and I find myself struggling to learn things that I should have learned in HS. I was also not a goof off kid, I wanted to learn. I just had nobody take the time to teach me it. It took me longer then most kids to understand things, nobody wanted to take that time with me.

    Sports - I saw a kid get busted for getting high on school grounds, but because he was on a sports team and they needed him for the game, they let him go ahead and play.

    Classroom, and building - The school spent to much money on making the school look good when they could have put the money to better use. Did we really need lap tops int he lunch room? They lasted a few weeks before the stupid kids broke them.

    Homework - It's high school everyone should have homework, and everyone will have homework.
