    Food: Honestly I haven't eaten cafeteria food since the 5th grade. I make my own healthy lunch everyday. As far as I can see there are so many choice of food. There are 9 different lines of food to pick from all providing a different style of meal. We offer a snack line too! And there are heathy choices in each line.

    Teachers: All teachers have different teaching style which most are easy to adapt to. My school abides by one specific grading policy that all the teachers follow. The teachers are very well knowledgable and provide a well way to teach us. I have enjoyed many teachers In the past and I know they have enjoyed me in their class. The students and teachers have a strong relationship.

    Health & Safety: Drug dogs are brought in to investigate any thought about drugs and alcohol. Our administrators search through everyone and everything if there is a rumor about any illegal substance on school property. The school is constantly reminding us to be aware of how harmful drugs and alcohol can be by showing films and providing walk through programs.

    Administration & Policies: For the most part, our staff members are strict on the rules and policies us students have to abide by. Although many parents may not think it's true, students get the proper punishment he/ she may deserve. Bullying is rare at my school and the dress code is like every dress code at other high schools. And everyone including the office staff, principal, and councilors are involved In our lives at school.
