    Food: The variety of food at Morgantown High School is great for all sorts of people because of the salad and fruit bar. The food itself is rather gross and I honestly did not eat a single day of senior year because of this. The options are healthy though which is good in supporting making our students better.

    Health & Safety: The health programs at Morgantown High School are insufficient since the nurse does not help the students as much as needed and with multiple counts of violence at the school even though there are security officers, the school should be kept more sanitary and safe.

    Administration & Policies: Morgantown High Schools' principals devote all of their attention to the students and their education. The students however are aware to stay away from the counselors and secretaries as both are equally unreliable and very rude. No one enforces the dress code probably because of the amount of students. Bullying is often handled if necessary but there aren't too many bully issues. The teachers are aware that students skip and will walk past one without questioning of why the student is not in class.

    Teachers: The teachers are excellent in the sense most genuinely care in improving the lives of the students. Although most care about the students, some slack when it comes to teaching by allowing the students to cheat and reading off the power-point without applying examples to the information on the slide.

    Educational Outcomes: After high school, I feel like I was little prepared for the real world. I had one teacher through my four years of high school actually attempt to teach the students a little on how to buy a house and what the taxes in our future paycheck would go to. Once I was out of high school, I didn't know how to fill out a check for when I had to pay rent or how to take notes during college lectures. High school prepares you for things such as how to find the slope on a graph, but high school did not prepare me for functions I use on a daily basis.
