On Student Culture & Diversity: We have a little, but lack of student involvement also means fewer cliques and more getting along. The demographic of the students is pretty similar all-around, and there are too many ways to just chill to allow for too many problems, though elective classes that are just flat out fun would help (like PE classes that are exclusively dodgeball or something so kids can get their credit and let off steam).

On Food: I could always find something I wanted to eat each day, but too often I just got pizza or a burger. Baked potatoes are fine, but you have to pay for the butter and everything. And I never got salads because of all the stuff I didn't like in them. In general, I realize that healthy options can be expensive, but if you could find ways to make them available to kids who can't pay for lunch that would be great since lunch options aren't as healthy as people should be eating in any community of the world. Sure there are options that taste great, but students should be able to pick up more fruits and vegetables they like. Maybe like a healthy eating contest or something would help.

On Administration & Policies: There aren't any policies I can remember as being harmful or particularly unnecessary though it would be good to explain to students the reason for the existence of many of them. Often its the fact that you're just telling us what to do and not treating them like adults that leads kids to want to break the rules in the first place.

On Overall Experience: Whatever we decide to do usually ends up happening with our personal flair. There are a lot of kids here who care about what they're doing and want to do it well. They do things the way that represents them and it adds personality and worth to the end product. I liked that we were able to do as much as we did, though we could do more and bring in other students who don;t participate in the extracurricular activities. Doing things your own way needs to be promoted, though its something these students are already leaning towards.

On Health & Safety: I don't remember any hazards myself. I never heard of any complaints from students either. Students who got sick either didn't care, or the nurse must have been nice enough for students not to rag on her.
