On Academics: Some classes are worth while and leave you thinking. However, a lot of classes students don't actually get much out of.

High School Senior

On Teachers: Some teachers actually care and want the best for their students, others not so much.

High School Senior

On Food: The food is nothing special, I don't like eating in the cafeteria because the food doesn't ever look appetizing.

2
High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There are a lot of bad coaches here that don't really care about the athletes, in sports across the board many players feel like they could do far better with higher quality coaches.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The staff is pretty strict about most things and many kids get detentions as well as in house suspension.
