High School Senior

On Health & Safety: The nurses can't really help with anything except for bandages. There's police on school grounds everyday. There's a tip line to report bullying. Nothing bad has happened to me while on school grounds so pretty safe.

On Overall Experience: This school is unique because of the variety of activities available in the school. Favorite experiences would be growing up in Gables for four years.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: Most of the community service clubs are large and there's barely any organization within the club. Sports are similar depending on the coach and leadership skills. Most students commit all four years to a community service club in order to obtain a board member position their senior year. Most popular of course is the football team which everyone fawns over and cares most about. When encountered with a problem, the administration tends to just let the students deal with it and not get involved which is a problem since it's a power issue.

High School Senior

On Food: The cafeteria is not always clean. There is no variety of food it ranges from burgers to pizza, there's really not that many options to choose from. Snacks include chips and cookies. The food is not very healthy it's greasy and there's a small portion. There's a vending machine of cold items that are healthy but refrigerated when want something warm and hot then the food quality degrades.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The uniform isn't enforced as much as it should be. Most students are aided by the assistant principles who are extremely helpful and care about what's in the best interest for the student. Attendance is very strict, with an abundance of absences and tardies, there are events that the student can't attend.
