    "The school isn't all that bad. It just depends on what the student wants to do with their lives, career lives. For me, I would prefer a career focused on STEM, and this school doesn't really offer anything for that, but if the student wants to go into another career like business, English, then this school is perfect because it does build on the basics and allows students to read and write better. Some of the teachers are immature and most of the students are, but overall everyone is laid back. Also the area around here is amazing there are a lot of food options so at first it can be overwhelming, but it is good that we get to go out for lunch so that we can explore."

    "More extracurricular activities are being added as I am graduating, so my first year (2013-2014) was pretty boring, as I've never been to a school with out a gymnasium, library, or auditorium, but I've also never been to a school that offers missionary work in the Dominican Republic. Some classrooms could use new chairs, but overall the place is chill."

    "If a student is failing, one can simply ask what they can do to help their grade if approached at the right time. Some teachers are more dedicated and do their best in their job, and some are average."

    "For the most part, the teachers are great. They care alot and most of them go out of their way just to help students who need it. If they see any students who are having difficulties then they have no problem helping them. Most of the teachers are easy to talk to and communicate with but some are a little harsh. The relationships between students and teachers are mostly good though and they help prepare us for college."
