    "From watching movies growing up set in high school, I had a very different expectation for school that how it really is. I have come to learn that most people are very friendly and helpful and there aren't typical "mean girls" like i assumed from movies. Some students do involve theirselves very much into school activities such as ASB and class counsel. Overall people at this school are easy to be around during the school year."

    "Students are either very involved or not at all."

    "Every school has the good and the bad but for the most part the teachers at my school are great educators that encourage all the students to speak up and have an opinion. The teaching styles do vary from teacher to teacher and I think it depends on the type of student when evaluating if that certain style is what they prefer. Some of the teachers I have had really emphasize on participation and making the students be involved and personally I love that and think it is a great way to prepare us for the real world."

    "I have had a fairly good experience at my high school for the past three years because of the diversity. There are many different clubs that work towards completely different goals, and all types of sports that are bound to suit you. I have been involved in both Softball and Golf and it is interesting how many different people you meet because of it. With the variety the school offers it is easy to find what best suits you."

    "There are a variety of teachers at the school with a variety of teaching styles. The workload seems to be dependent on how certain teachers like to run their class. Some teachers make it clear that they understand not only are students involved in four other classes with varying difficulty, but also sport teams at the school with after school practice, and also the lives we have outside of school. These teachers understand this and give students a workload that is manageable and do-able. As for some teachers, they make the workload difficult to finish and complete with good work put into it."
