My overall experience with my high school was purely amazing. From my freshman year to my senior year, my class was definitely a family. And in the end of it all we went out with a BANG! My senior year was the best and our spirit was outstanding, we won the Florida Spirit Showdown Award! But if I could describe my experience at school in one word it would be family, because just like family we were there for our school through thick and thin, when things were really bad and when they were good.

School as a whole is wonderful! Although, there are huge problems with the finicial aid department. Also, there are some professors that have been teaching there for years, and now base there teaching skills on favoritism and not so much of the work and effort.

Most of the dormitories have been remodeled within the pass three years, so they're basically brand new! Make sure that you live in Straight Hall (Males), Camphor or Hartzell (Females). Living on campus has it's benefits because you never have to leave campus for social events like parties or other social activities.
