On Health & Safety: I never really knew who the school nurse was, despite that I had been in the health office a couple of times. I think the school is pretty safe. I feel like there should be more drug sweeps though.

On Resources & Facilities: I feel like there needs to be more tutoring involved. Also, the buildings are all pretty new since they began building new areas on campus. Mainly, more American parents are involved in the school. Buses get extremely full.

On Extracurriculars: There are a lot of clubs and sports you can be involved in. You can also create a club practically about any issue/topic as long as it is appropriate. Some clubs are really good, but others lack the right people of being in charge.

On Sports & Fitness: I've never done a sport or took a weight training class, but I've heard from other students that sports and fitness are pretty good.

On Educational Outcomes: I felt like my school prepared me for most of the application process of college and financial aid. I do feel like it needed to prepare students more in the area or letting students know what types of careers are out there. Student's have to know that you can go to school for a year or two and get a degree. I feel like my school emphasized attending a four year college or university. They did not mention trade schools or certification programs. I feel like they should have stressed more how to get scholarships.
