    "I would go here again because the teachers are the best. But the kids? Not so much. Favorite experiences are meeting fellow AP kids, making friends with them, and having someone to gripe with while we study. The sheer amount of AP classes really makes this school unique, as well as the new renovations. The new building is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, especially compared to the building it used to be."

    "There are really two sides to my school: the honors kids, and their teachers; and then there's the rest of them. Many of the students not in the honors track drop out, go directly into the work force, and/or do the bare minimum to even barely scrape by. I will be focusing on the honors track, because that is where I am. In my track the teachers are all well-read, and if they aren't knowledgeable about a subject are quick to admit it and provide resources (websites, books, other teachers or people in town). There are a great variety of teaching styles, and every single teacher I have had has a sincere, very real interest in their students. They want the best for their students. Communication skills are not always the best (some don't answer email, some do sporadically, some have office hours that take a whole year to pin down). Consistency in grading has improved in my four years here but it still feels a little fluid."

    "Although some teachers act like they don't care most of them do care. Most of my teachers are easy to talk to and very good teachers. They don't have favorites and stay consistent in grading."

    "Mr. Mills was my AP history teacher for all four years of college. He put us students first in his life, he stayed extra hours over just to help tutor, make lesson plans, and support our sports teams. Mr. Mills was a great teacher, he wouldn't move on to another topic till he knew that everyone understood the topics. He made history fun for most of us, even the difference in politics."

    "At first I didn't like it because the school is different and the older people got annoyed quickly but now I really enjoy the school and my experience has been ok."
