I enjoyed my four years here, and I had no issues. The social studies department is great!

This school is not good at all, the teachers don't really care and the counselors don't help you. The teachers don't teach and I was hoping they would add curriculums that would help in the real world but they don't have those because and when kids failing the teachers don't really help; they need to improve.

Trash School. This school offers no preparation for college and places an emphasis only on sports. Theres only a small number of teachers who actually prepare you for higher education and aside from that the students are given little attention by their counselors who only suggest to go to Community College or even worse: the military. This school needs serious reform, starting with the administration!

This school is an amazing school there's so many sports so many caring people who actually cares about your grades and they'll do anything to help you pass. Teachers are like your Freinds but they'll help you achieve your goal of passing.
