Topic: Overall Experience
"This school is unparalleled as far as challenging courses and academic rigor, however, the students' weekend life is out of control, which, of course, is expected at any high school. But, there has been an absurd amount of partying that has gotten out of control- if it continues, somebody will seriously get hurt. Although the teachers and faculty do the best they can to discourage the students from doing this, a clear message has not been sent, and they continue to party. My own, personal, overall experience at this high school, however, has been fantastic. Unlike other high schools, there are so many opportunities to get involved, and because I have participated in multiple sports and clubs, and even started my own (an outdoor adventure club), I have created so many new friendships and have developed as a leader in and out of school. My teachers have been very encouraging and helpful towards my successful academic performance, and the rigor of the courses which I have taken, I feel, have well prepared me for college. If I could do it all over again, I would absolutely stay at this school. Although there is a fair amount of partying, the amount is expected of any high school, and the best way to deal with it is to not partake in those activities. The activities that I would and do partake in are those provided for by the school."
