On Health & Safety: The health and safety policies at my school are above average. The school has a no bullying policies. While at school I feel safe which I very important to me.

On Student Culture & Diversity: My school is extremely cliquey. A majority of the student body is LDS which makes it hard for the students that are not to fit in. A lot of people are judgement and are very aware of what is going on around them.

On Food: The food always seemed to be over priced for the poor quality that it was offered at. The options were usually a wide range but still the food was not good not matter what you picked. I used to get a sandwich everyday cause only so much could go wrong with a basic sandwich. If someone wanted to be health conscious their only option was a salad. The vending machines offered go options such as the following: various sodas, chips and ice creams. Though the vending machines were not healthy they did offer food that most students would enjoy. The only problem with the vending machines was that there was very few of them and one would have to walk all the way across campus to get to them.

On Resources & Facilities: Tutoring is often offered to people mainly for the subjects math and science. The schools janitor staff has become very poor due to the high amounts of budget cuts in the past couple of years. The overall condition is still good it just needs a nice deep cleaning. The technology has taken off within the past six year and a majority of my classes have it incorporated into their daily lessons plans. The guidance counselors are often busy and one must set up an appointment days in advanced to talk to them unless they go during open lunches for quick questions.

On Extracurriculars: My first three years I was involved in FFA. I raised a lamb and two bunnies through and sold both of them at the county fair. Being in that club taught me a ton about responsibility and how important it is to be punctual and reliable. I also was in the go green club which was about the ecofriendly concept. I current am in the clay club. Pottery has recently became my passion and I look forward to doing it daily. I have never gone on a break from school and misses something until now like I do with my clay class. The administration is always supporting and encouraging athletes to try out for sports.
