On Extracurriculars: A lot of the after-school activities involved strategical games such as chess, checkers, and even quidditch.

On Teachers: Some teachers that I've had were amazing; they walked around, they engaged with the students, they answered any questions we threw at them, and they told stories that we could relate to the lesson. Others sat in their chairs, going through bulletin points on their PowerPoint in a monotone voice, not bothering to explain anything when we asked questions; they never failed to have several sleepy students. Most teachers, however, were absolutely amazing; I created close ties to several of my former teachers, and we still keep in contact to this day.

On Educational Outcomes: Most of my teachers gave me real-life situations that I could solve before heading out into the real world. Others taught us nothing except for the Pythagorean Theorem, which doesn't really apply to most real-life concepts.

On Food: I really love the school's food; there's a lot of variety, and it's really delicious. If you want healthy, there's healthy options. If you want loaded carbs and fatty deliciousness, there's unhealthy options.

On Academics: I love the clubs and activities the school has. The teachers are very involved and like to help the students when needed.
