    "I like the new campus it's beautiful. The only thing I would change are the 5'0 tall doors in the science building restrooms and the lack of food choice."

    "With a new campus a lot of resources and facilities are in our hands especially with the tennis courts, gyms, and a gear up office. The people in gear up help you with college and encourage you to have things ready before the deadline. Our school motto is "forever green and gold" and the school spirit is very much alive. Unfortunately, the school mainly focuses on sports instead of the academics and clubs. Your counselors never help you unless you're top 10% of the class which is really sad actually. I would really like that to change because there is just so much favoritism."
