    Sports & Fitness: My school doesn't have fitness opportunities for the school. We do have an athletic facility but it is only used for the football players and not for all athletics involved. We have the basic programs like football, basketball, baseball and track. I wish they could offer dance, fitness program, tennis, soccer and etc.

    Extracurriculars: Our school doesn't have a vast majority of extracurricular activities to offer due to funding. My school is small and don't have the extra things that other schools in a major city can offer the students.

    Student Culture & Diversity: At my school everyone is with a certain group. Only a hand full of people are very social and talk to everyone. Most people feel as if they are better than the next so they don't socialize with them.

    Academics: Most of everyone take the same classes. We do not have any AP classes because we do not have enough teachers. Only a hand full of teachers will give the extra help to students.

    Food: Our cafeteria does not have a variety at all. Everyone eats the same thing, unless they run out of the first meal. Sometimes the food they serve is old and out-due but they still give it to us.
