Like most schools, we do focus heavily on sports, meaning that kids who want to fit in either have to join a team, or find another group to fit in with. Academics is NOT heavily stressed, with the result that the school is struggling to meet the new required graduation requirements like Algebra. There is almost no recognition of academic success as compared to the hoopla over sports activities. Athletics are important, but not any more important than being successful in reading, writing, and arithmatic.

I dont think they focus on the basics enough. They seemed more worried about sports then actually school.

My belief is that students should be recognized for their academic achievements first and foremost and their sports should be second not first! The freshmen need recognition also, this is the make or break year and without encouragement I feel they get lost. Peer mediation is a step that should be addressed and put into the school. It makes everyones jobs easier. Math and english need more work and better teachers. I feel there is more room for improvement, but due to the economy and the other factors in our community I feel that we are on track.

I think that this school has lots of intellegent and outgoing students and it should be more recognized for its achivements.
