On Food: There are a variety of foods to choose from, but the lines to the bars are very long which causes three quarters of lunchtime to be spent waiting to get food. The food looks like it has sat for a while before being served and has obviously been reheated. There haven't been any cases of food poisoning, but the food does get soggy fast.

On Health & Safety: Drug use among students is apparent. They like to make it known to the public via the social internet, and some even walk into school high. The random drug tests only apply for athletes who have a promising future. These athletes arent the ones they should be focusing these drug tests on. The school is pretty safe, not counting the kid that rode his motorcross bike through the school. No damage was inflicted on the school or any of the students, but the punishment for him was quite extensive.

On Overall Experience: The teachers and staff were great, but the students werent so great. They were pompous and pretty inconsiderate. The curriculum was pretty strong and had a firm pattern.

On Extracurriculars: I never really paid much attention to clubs and sports, so i wouldn't know.

On Academics: They had after school tutoring, the teachers were always available to tutor, the workload was moderate, and the study options were low.
