On Food: The lunch staff is very nasty and disrespectful. The food is served with mold and had caused students to catch stomach viruses. School lunch is of low quality and is also served expired. This is completely unacceptable.

High School Senior

On Teachers: The teachers sometimes grade students very in appropriately. Grades that are not deserved are given frequently and they themselves can't even teach that well.

4
High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There are a wide variety of sports available at my school. There is soccer, track, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, etc.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: Technology is always available to us. However, guidance counselors are not helpful and truthfully don't know much. Students do a lot for themselves.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: Everybody pretty much accepts one another. There are a few trouble makers here and there, but everybody treats each other equally for the most part.
