  • This school is defantiely a veary friendly school, extreamly open to all new comers even though it is a small school, in a small town. I have been coming here my whole life, both my older sisters, parents, and 3 of my grandparents, all went there whole high school education in this school. Almost every single teacher is nice, none of them are judgemental of student, and they truely try and help every student. most of them even alow students to come in during there planning time (if the teacher they have for that period lets them) to help them if they need it. The students that I know (which is almost every student lol like i said small school) is extreamly open and welcoming to new students.
