On Sports & Fitness: At my school Ahletics are a big deal for students; majority of the students are involved in some type of sport. We have a variety of sports, some are track and field, baseball, tennis, golf, cheerleading, crew, and football. We also have some fitness classes such as P.E, Advanced P.E, and Weight training. Most of our major teams like football, basketball, softball, lacrosse, and soccer have a lot of school spirit, these are the sports that most of the student body from my school and other schools would attend the games.

On Administration & Policies: Sometimes I feel like some adults only select Hispanic girls to complain about their outfits. there will be girls whose clothes reveal too much and nobody would say anything.

On Overall Experience: I would've had a great experience if it isn't because I was bullied several times.

On Teachers: Most of the teachers I have had are great. They care about the students, but there are teachers who I wonder why do they have that job.
