On Sports & Fitness: I'm not a huge sports fan, but for the students who really do care, there are a lot of events.

High School Senior

On Food: Food anywhere in Seattle Public Schools is going to be gross. Just bring your own lunch or eat at ezzels. If you must eat school lunch grab a salad.

High School Senior

On Academics: It all depends on the teacher. I've had absolutely amazing teachers who have taught me so much, and then I've had some who have barely taught me a thing. It also seems like teachers treat honors and AP classes better than they treat regualr classes, which can be frustrating.
