High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: You can be friends with anyone you choose. However, there are typical social cliques (i.e. the smokers, the skaters, the "nerds"/club kids, the hispanic kids stick together a lot too), but many within the cliques reach out and make their own friends outside of their cliques.

On Resources & Facilities: The bathrooms are usually gross. Lockers are small, but that's typical of any school's lockers...

On Health & Safety: I didn't see any policies when it came to bullying and drug and alcohol use was never really mentioned. However, there was an actual cop on campus.

On Food: The food was not great. There weren't many healthy options besides a salad and some fruit cups. There wasn't a wide variety on the menu over all. The snack cart, although not always available, did provide some extra options for the students to choose from.

On Overall Experience: My time here wasn't terrible but if I had a choice I would not do it all over again. The school seemed to be very "cliquey" and not entirely open to new students. The administration was repetitive in their enforcement of the rules.
