    Health & Safety: Nothing bad really happens here, so there isn't much of a need for counter measures. There's maybe one big pot bust a year, but the kids are dealt with and theres no violence. I feel safe.

    Food: I don't eat the school lunch, so I can't give a good opinion

    Academics: Lots of disparity. There are some classes that I won't sleep for days to finish projects for, and some that I can do the work for in 15 minutes.

    Teachers: There is a pretty wide disparity. Some teachers are amazing (Chris Smith, Joe Greenwald, Robin Fawcett, Carl Recchia to name a few but not even close to all), but some are terrible. For the most part it's well known who the bad teachers are, and students tend to avoid classes with them.

    Resources & Facilities: Lots of computers are available, and most classrooms are well hooked up with technology. My guidance counselor is GREAT, don't know about all of them. Academic support is great. Counselors help with college prep.
