High School Senior

On Overall Experience: I was able to take the classes I wanted to with relative ease. Nothing stands out as particularly awful about the school. Drugs aren't really a problem per say, but they aren't nonexistent either. Athletics are good. I think that best thing about school is the open lunch for everyone. It lasts 57 minutes and is split into two halves, A and B. Everyone has lunch at the same time and people can eat all over the school. Clubs meet during lunch, tutorials happen during lunch, people go to the library during lunch. It's very convenient and really made my experience at the school.
