On Resources & Facilities: Finding out information at school can be frustrating because teachers and guidance counselors tell students conflicting information. I have a great disgust for the quality of desks, classrooms, and sidewalks for the amount of gum that is present and how dirty they become.

On Teachers: Some teachers seem interested in what they are teaching and others don't, so the quality of the class all depends on how enthusiastic the teachers are on the subject they are teaching.

On Academics: Most of the teacher are good and willing to work with you, all you have to do is ask for help.

On Extracurriculars: Lots of clubs and it doesn't require that much effort to create one. However it does take more effort to keep the club going.
