On Extracurriculars: There are so many clubs and organizations to choose from. I kept busy - sports, service clubs, etc. It was fun and provided a different dynamic for my school days.

On Student Culture & Diversity: Yes, a lot of diversity in ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation. Which is fine - diversity keeps things interesting! I'm glad I went to a school where everyone was accepted.

On Administration & Policies: The principals were on top of everything - if something was going wrong, they made an announcement and made sure to send out letters to parents to make them aware.

On Food: I never really ate the cafeteria food, mainly because it's basically just pizza and fries every day. There wasn't many options. Some vending machines, however. I always packed my lunch.
