On Food: There are barely any options to choose from as far as food goes. We have vending machines, but they aren't available until after school hours. We have a cafe, but only students in that specific building during their third block class are allowed to order food there. The cafeteria has the worst food possible. The food is neither tasty nor nutritious. I love healthy fruits and vegetables, but there are virtually none available at this school.

On Teachers: There are great teachers, and there are not so great teachers. I have had some of the best teachers that I will ever have, and their teaching style fit perfectly with my learning style. Then there are the teachers that believe that they are on top of the world and they know everything, so they believe that they shouldn't have to teach us; we should already know it. I believe that different students learn in different ways, therefore they would rate the same teacher differently. However, the majority of the teachers that I have had have been great teachers.

On Resources & Facilities: I believe that my school is an average high school. In the past year, tablets were assigned to each student and we are allowed to take them home. This has brought on the biggest change that I have seen in my school. Most classes are now technology-oriented. The majority of assignments are either completely reliant on technology or at least partially.

On Overall Experience: My experience at this school has been great. I have met great people but unfortunately there are many students who are careless about school. This school though has a lot of flexibility and offers help to students who are along the border of graduating. Besides this, the school also displays many scholarship opportunities and college information to students who are more concerned about their education. Besides this, my school has many extra-curricular activities that one can participate in. I have made many bonds with students along with teachers and had the privilege to be involved in my school. If I could, I would definitely relive my high school career here again and show my yellow jacket pride for this school, which will always be a memorable part of my life.

On Resources & Facilities: Our school has many resources to students. Each student gets a technological advice to take home. Students can even borrow laptops in school or use the library. Teachers consistently use projectors to teach and students have the option to take an online class if they want. We have great resources and make good use of the technology provided. The only problem is that sometimes we have technical problems with the devices used.
