On Student Culture & Diversity: Students all hang out in racially diverse groups with people they can relate with. There are quite a number of students who are really involved both in the community and at school. Peer pressure isn't to big of a problem.

On Overall Experience: The teachers at this school have done so much to help me be the best I could be I could always count on them for assistance on homework and class work problems. Though the student parking lot is a nightmare and some students can be quite rude I would still come back to this school just because of the teachers.

On Food: Students have a variety of healthy choices to choose from in the cafeteria though some foods don't always taste that great. There is a build your own salad line and a share table for kids to discard food they don't want but others might.

On Health & Safety: Most bathrooms don't have toilet seat covers or soap and some sinks don't work. Usually most teachers have tissues and hand sanitizer available.
