On Extracurriculars: After school activities was my favorite part of school. I think this is the best option. There are groups for every academy. They keep the students morals up and gives the students something to do.

On Sports & Fitness: There are many sports at this school but if the grades are poor the student will not be able to play. The coaches stay on top of the athletes. With the school spirit its a lot of it, especially at pep rallies. There is a thing at our school called the jiggalow where each class competes for the spirit stick. Its a great experience and keeps the students extra excited for the next one'

On Administration & Policies: The Aps, students and parents all have a great relationship. They seem to know exactly how to handle the situation and since it is a local school everyone knows each other there isn't much of a problem. The dress code was lenient.
