On Sports & Fitness: I joined track and felt unwelcome by the coaches. I felt invisible and discouraged. I quit.

On Health & Safety: The school has a clinic and the staff are nice. I only went there once for a physical. They should be more open to talk about topics such as sex and contraceptives. I feel like that town is too close minded.

On Academics: As hard as scheduling is at this school many students overcome the proficiency grading system and are able to get great grades, especially because of the weighted GPA system.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There is a definite split between students that are hispanic or any other ethnicity. However as far as social groups are concerned, it is pretty typical.

On Food: The school lunches are pretty foul and do not have much variety, however the snack machines have been updated to refrigerated and stocked with healthy snack alternatives.
