On Sports & Fitness: I have a lot of friends that are athletes, me included so the big things to do through the school are attend athletic events.

On Health & Safety: Our doors are always locked and we have a brand new high school so its very high tech. We know who is coming in and out of our school and that's very important.

On Extracurriculars: The clubs at our school are required which helps college resumes but it also forces students to choose a club that they might not necessarily like. I think required clubs are annoying; students do not enjoy club day. The sports at our school are average. We have a really good soccer and track team, no one really goes to those events so there isn't a lot of school spirit.

High School Senior

On Food: There's tons of options of food. They change out the type of food daily and the costs aren't bad and theres a reduced cost option if your in a low income family.
