    "I can honestly say that nearly every student in my school shows school spirit/pride. You can walk through the halls and nearly everyone you pass is wearing a shirt that represents our school whether it be for an athletic event, club, organization, or class. On the other hand, there is nothing that really makes my school unique. It is a traditional public school and if someone new to the area were to be surveyed, I do not believe they would find anything unique or different about my school. If I could do it all over again, I cannot say that my school would be my first choice. I do believe that there are better educational opportunities for me out there at the secondary school level."

    "Teachers at my school are not stimulating when they are teaching their respective topics. I do not feel the motivation to learn the topics or lessons being taught to me. Also, I almost always feel as though my teachers are rushing through lessons just to get them over with so that we can work independently and basically teach ourselves. On the flip side, technology is a huge part of our learning and I can honestly say that I have used some form of technology in every class for the past two years to learn in a different way, submit an assignment, have a discussion, or create a project."

    "There are only a handful of teachers that genuinely care about students, many are just there for a paycheck."

    "Being a former student of this school district, I feel it was important to explain how my experience was. Honestly, many of the teachers are new, fresh out of college. (Due to large amounts of teachers retiring in previous years) However, there were many changes while I attended. (New principal, admin changes) However, being a student with disabilities, i had major concerns for their expectations of their special-needs students. I was fortunate enough to be accepted to 3 of my top choices for schools, but it made me wonder if I was the only student with an IEP who went to a 4 year university! Many teachers and admin used my disability as an excuse to not re-explain things, etc. Which is unacceptable. Honestly, if it wasn't for the cheaper taxes that drew my family to the area, I wouldn't have ended up in this school district."
