On Student Culture & Diversity: Everyone tries to be someone in the social scene. Some people will go as far as changing their views to match others and many dive into drug and alcohol use. As for being a minority, there is little to no acceptance since everyone is mainlyrude and uncaring towards to homosexuals, latin American, African americans, and even german students. If you're not a white american, you're not acceoted that well.

On Health & Safety: The school's nurse is always overburdened with children who want to go home for something as simple as a bruise. There has been an increase in security measures around our school to help kids but its not really helpful and just proves to be a problem overall.

On Sports & Fitness: The sports program is widely supported by the entire community. Itiswell funded and loved by nearlyevery single student. FHhasone of the best high school stadiums on the east coast and there are two gymnasiums. The sports teams are also good at supporting the community.

On Overall Experience: The school ranges with its performance as you can get days where its great or you'll get an extremely bad day with bomb threats and kids who are threatening your life. The school isn't the best and needs many improvements. If I could do this all over again I'd probably be wary of going here, but out of all the schools in the county this one happens to be the most okay.

On Food: The school lunch is not really healthy or appealing. The lunch ladies are rather kind and joking but the lunch is rather gross. Most food doesn't seem like food and there are only three lunch options, such as, two of the main lunch or a peanut butter jelly sandwich. The lunch also has made children refuse to eat lunch, pack, or go to the expensive vending machines.
