  • Awesome school, good environment, great school spirit, incredible teachers. Only complaint i have would be that it seems that the philosophy of the administration is that unless it has to do with test scores going up, it's not important, which means a lot of extra-curricular activities suffer, such as the band, which historically has been a state-level competitor, but lately has been lacking due to less funding and lost practice time due to cut-classes

  • This school is a very great school. It has lots of positives like great teachers and a great homey feeling. Most of the teachers that i have/had are great,they really know what they are doing.

    Some of the negatives to our school is not enough time between bells. For example, say you have a 3rd period class downstairs and had to go to your locker before 4th. You don't have enough time to get out of your 3rd per. class and up to your locker,get your books and get back downstairs to your 4th period class. They should extend the bells back to what they used to be! Five minutes between all classes!
