On Extracurriculars: Administration and staff member seem to be very supportive of extracurricular activities hosted by the school. The most popular activities would be theater, football, basketball, and lacrosse. The commitment level for clubs from students isn't the best. There really aren't many/hardly any after school activities besides sports. Types of clubs include FCCLA, Relay for Life, Key Club, etc.

On Academics: This school offered the International Baccalaureate program, which seemed to draw a lot more students to the school than other schools in the area, though I was not part of the program. Even though I was just in regular classes, I found the school to be challenging, but in a good way. I felt that it really disciplined me with its heavier workload given to students and with the staff members' caring attitude towards students' success (with a few teachers as exceptions). It is a very organized school overall with a lot of clubs and sports offered. Last but not least, every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of every week, the school brought volunteer employees from Lockheed Martin into the school to for a free one and a half hour session of tutoring for any student who walked in, which helped me significantly. Truly, my only complaint was the school's ability to add any curriculum into classes on good study and test/college preparation skills. Those are skills I was never really taught that I wish I was, because I know I could have gotten better grades having known those skills. Instead, I spent a lot of time learning those skills on my own and still don't feel like I am ready for college or fully educated on those skills like I feel like I should be.

On Food: I find that the cafeteria is clean and organized. The menu is pretty consistent... same food options for a certain day of the week, for example, there are the same food options on Mondays, same on Tuesdays, etc. There is a salad bar with an addition to separate snacks and drinks for sale, but the milk comes with the three dollar meal. There are usually 2-3 options every day for meals. The salad bar is for the people who want healthier food, and anyone who buys a three dollar meal can help themselves to the salad bar, or one can just buy a meal and say that their whole meal will be from the salad bar. As for dietary accommodations, the salad bar covers for those kids who need those special accommodations.

On Extracurriculars: There are some clubs and activities, but most of the sports require talent and are not open for anyone to play for fun.

On Teachers: There are a wide range of personalities the teachers offer which make going to classes enjoyable.
