On Food: The cafeteria food is, in my opinion, pretty gross. The only thing that I would ever eat in there are the sandwiches at the sandwich bar line, however after a few weeks it tiring to eat the same thing. I would suggest bringing lunch from home.

On Sports & Fitness: Connally has not been the best in most sports. Football for example is not the best sport. However that's not to say that they aren't good in other areas like soccer. Were not known for our team sports but I would say that on a scale were like the lower average.

On Extracurriculars: There are so many clubs. I personally am in four of them. I think there is a huge variety of extracurricular activities and I am sure that every student can find something that they will like to do.

On Administration & Policies: The administration does what ever is best for the safety of their students. Of course there are flaws but overall I would say that everyone works together to help make the students successful.
