Student Opinions Of The New School
By: Brittany Page, Staff Writer

  “I feel that the High School is a bit strict. But overall I think that it’s okay.
I do believe that it could be better. The lunch is crowded and I believe
there is a need for three lunches; A, B & C.”
         - Sedrikka Hudson, C/O 2004

  “It is a nice school and all but it is really big. It would not hurt if they
gave an extra minute or two to get to our classes without any hassle.
Cause everybody is not the same and it would be a good help.”
         - Kevin Johnson, C/O 2005

  “I think the new school is okay…they are too strict about keeping it nice
though. The lunchroom is WAY TOO CROWDED! But other than that it is
pretty nice.”
         - Jeana Childers, C/O 2007
