On Student Culture & Diversity: Tons of diversity. It's not hard to have a friend of every race or religion. Everyone is accepting of everything.

On Food: The mac and cheese is the bomb.com here. I bring my lunch most days but when I find out it's mac and cheese day, I go buy lunch instead. I used to really like baked potato day, but they started only serving meat OR cheese with the potato, not both.

High School Senior

On Teachers: I have good teachers for the most part. A lot of the complaints I hear are along the lines of "They have a really cool personality but they suck at teaching." Not sure how it is for non-AP teachers.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: Classes like Yearbook and AV Tech where computers are used often could use updated computers, more storage space on the servers.

4
High School Senior

On Academics: Too competitive among AP students, not enough drive in regular students. Too much of a difference between the two. In need of more honors classes. Teachers are good for the most part.
