On Resources & Facilities: THe buses are absolutely horrible, and so is parking. it's basically a lose-lose deal.

High School Senior

On Teachers: I have loved almost all of my teachers. I had a couple ones that were not good at all, but besides that the overall quality is great. I feel like they are all very well qualified and know very well what they are teaching.

On Food: I don't get food from the cafeteria, but it seems like there are mostly average options, besides the fruit that you are required to take. But not as many people get food from the cafeteria as they do from the Ala carte, which is basically all unhealthy.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: I feel like the attendance is really, really, strict and that is the only thing that matters to the administration. It is so heavily watched that nothing else is really enforced. I also don't agree with having to pay for attendance school.

On Sports & Fitness: We have lots of sports at our school, but I feel like the only important ones are football and basketball if we make it into a tournament. Besides that, there is hardly no support, even for our nationally ranked Cross Country team.
