This is a very generic school. There isn't anything special about it and it has its flaws. For 2020, the school has a system. The students in a grade are separated between 2 teams based on a country. For 6th grade its Team Brazil and Team Chile. For 7th grade it's Team Kenya and Team Morocco and 8th grade its Team Japan and Team Mongolia. The school uses this team system for challenges and such and a large event around the beginning of the school where the teams have to shout the school chant, the team chant, and scream as loud as they can. I recommend bringing ear muffs when going to this event. It's mostly just school patriotism to convince the students that they are having fun. The school itself is over 50 years old, so most of the stuff is old. The teachers are mostly alright. Some are good and some are awful. The school has an annoying policy where normal backpacks are banned and you have to wear string backpacks due to a shooting that the school refuses to acknowledge and says it's because of teachers tripping over them which is the worst reason of all time. The school now has plans to ban backpacks entirely and force students to put all of their work in a binder which I did for a year and plot twist: it didn't go so well, which will make the school years hell for the students even more. There is a very interesting mental evolution that you can witness in the 6th grade. The students come in as good little two shoes and then leave as edgy teens. The school staff alright although Mr. Hansen was an insufferable asshoole In terms of availability for extracurricular activities, the school has an alright selection. The art teachers know how to do art professionally. The theater classes take place in the school theater which is apparently a rare opportunity although they get pissed when students leave a tiny piece of trash even though the people that rent out the theater trash beyond belief. I didn't really take any classes in music and sports. The afterschool clubs are not what they used to be. There used to be a large variety but as it currently stands, the only clubs that I know of are Chess and Cross Country. It was obvious that the school was going to remove them with the constant advertising of Cross Country when all it is running around the school field, I've seen it first hand. There was debate, basketball, soccer I think, robotics, and some that I probably missed. In conclusion, this school is your generic school with a lot of flaws.

The new policy that they are putting in with just having us carry binders around school with no backpacks which is so freaking STUPID!!!! But I love doing the performing arts programs because they are so fun!! Also come see ONCE ON THIS ISLAND THE MUSICAL, April 22-25! It's going to be so good!
