On Student Culture & Diversity: Their is rarely any peer pressure because most people are friendly. Most students are not that involved in after school activities nor have much motivation to do well in school (laziness).

On Academics: Most teachers treat is as a job with not much motivation, the curriculum is strict but not all of the lessons help most student. The scheduling process recently changed but it was a bit hard to request some classes.

High School Junior

On Food: The staff do a great job on serving, keeping things clean, but the food choices are the problem. They try to vary the food but it seems to be the same after a while of eating it.

On Teachers: Only a few teachers try and are excited to teach, but most teachers seem like this is just a job.

High School Junior

On Extracurriculars: Most of the leadership and helping the community clubs are for everyone and are free (except NHS). There are even after school tutorials where students can go to another teacher if they need to.
