    "There are a large number of students who care about their academics, and excel in them. The teachers teaching methods help a lot, because they make sure students know what they're learning, and if they don't they are available outside of class to make sure they understand the material. Teachers also respect that students get work in another class, so they make sure not to overload a student with homework. We have a thing at our school, and it's called the learning center; it's every period in the library and one teacher from every subject is available to help students. It's like tutoring, and it helps a lot for the students who need help, but can't come in after school. Our academics are high among another schools in the nation."

    "High School has been the best experience of my life. Mostly for a few reasons, and the number one reason being band. I joined band February of my junior year, and it's the best decision I've ever made. It has changed my life and I absolutely love it. I finally feel like I'm apart of something, and I can be myself. The entire band is friendly, fun, and accepting. I play the french horn and I enjoy it so much, it's really fun to play and I find it easy to play because I used to play trumpet for 3 years. But apart from band, I do love my school. If I could redo it, I definitely would choose this school again. All departments from this school are outstanding; From the arts, music, academics, and sports, we excel in each. The student body is very welcoming and accepts people for who they are. Our principal Mr. Krantz is by far the greatest principal I've ever had, he makes our school positive and is the friendliest person I have ever met. He makes this school something to look forward to."

    "I'm going into my senior year now, and all of the teachers I've had have helped me succeed to get here. Their teaching methods made it easy to learn the material, and when I was struggling in class they would help me to better understand what we were learning. They also made sure to be available outside of class to help us if we didn't understand the material. They were consistent with their grading, and gave constructive criticism to help us understand what we were doing wrong, so that we could improve our writing skills. It also helped when they offered extra credit, especially when most students were falling behind. What really helped was their interest in us; They knew if we were struggling in class, or if we were upset about something, and they would help us and they offered to listen if we needed to talk about something, and would even let us eat in their classroom with them if we were having personal problems, or if we needed to finish an assignment. I thank all my teachers I've had because they helped get me to where I am today, and have helped sculpt who I am."

    "Everyone at this school is different, and with that being said, everyone has different views which leads to a lot of debates. From religion, race, politics, and sexuality, there's a lot to talk about, and some conversations are unfriendlier than most. But that's how today's society is unfortunately. But apart from that, our school is accepting of one another, there's just a small percentage that is judgemental. There isn't really peer pressure, but sometimes students get overwhelmed to do something, but that mostly is because of anxiety. But if a student is scared to do something there are students there who support and cheer them on. I think our student body is very accepting with everyone."

    "I feel like as a student body, we would go against bullying. Many people would stick up for others if they needed it and we are very understanding. I like this generation because of that. However, there still is bullying of course, but many don't tolerate it if they see or hear it's going on."
