The teachers are okay, students are a bit worse, and the academics, they are right on the edge of being bad. Bullying isn't really a problem, but the food, on the other hand, awful. I suggest that if you don't want your kid to eat soggy fries and under cooked pizza, then lunch brought from home is the best option. The sports aren't that great either. The football team this year lost every single game, and it isn't the players' fault it's the coach's. They also pay little to no attention to other sports like cross-country basketball and volleyball. Not to mention the music program is awful as well! The band sounds fine, but the orchestra on the other hand. And once again, it's the teacher's fault, not the students.
