  • well this school has a lot of strict stupid rules. And some of the teachers are old and really need to retire because they don't have that spark anymore. Also the vice principal is meaner then the actual principle. oh and the dress code rule is stupid. i think we should be able to wear what we want. Also alot of the kids are snobby and disrespectful. they only care about what your wearing and how popular you are. And its true that its only fun if u get involved but its kinda hard. (getting into drama is hard)

  • It's an awesome school. The teachers are always there to help you. Although we have a strict dresscode we manage to get through with it. In P.E. we do have to tuck in our P.E. shirt but still with all the time taken away from getting dressed(10 minutes) and waiting for coached(5 mniutes) it turns out to be only half an hour of being in those clothes.

  • I personally enjoyed my 3 years here. I had a lot of fun. When you get involved, you tend to have a better experience.
