    "the teachers in the upper classes are amazing! very well versed in there field and love to teacher. they want to help and push us to learn. the lower level class teacher are not as enthusiastic and they feel like they are pulling teeth to teach some kids. every teacher teaches differently depending on how they learned best. It is nice to learn multiple styles so that when college rolls around we have experience in everything. grading is consistent through out most rooms but in others not so much. every teacher i belive care but depending on their classes and how they are treated change how they view each class. i have loved my time at this school and have grown very close to some teachers."

    "Some teachers are more approachable than others. Also, some teachers seem to genuinely care more about the students well being outside of the classroom than others which can help the student in the classroom."

    "The support from not only the staff but also my peers was outstanding during my senior year. When my dad passed away from a year and a half grueling battle against cancer my peers planned for everyone to wear red in support of my family and I on the day of the funeral."
