On Resources & Facilities: Being a newly constructed school and as large as it is the building is maintained very well. I do think the counselors are overwhelmed with the amount of students they have, mine never seemed too concerned with me. I never had too many problems but the few times I was requested to come in to schedule the next trimester or discuss college options it was kind of redundant in the sense all I did was write down what colleges I was thinking about and then recommended to fill out applications and scholarships. However rather than walking me through the processes my counselor merely told me where to find the paperworks and to seek help if needed.

On Academics: I wasn't a huge fan of studying or taking tests because I had many opposing views on them. I also didn't agree with a few of the classes we were required to take or the lessons we were taught in others. I don't have too many regrets about high school, my largest being I wish I had gotten involved more. I wish I had joined Student Council, Key Club, or that art club I'd heard of and so wanted to join but hadn't. I do understand that I should have taken initiative and signed up or asked the questions I had, but I never completely felt comfortable about joining Student Council. The students involved in it always acted like they were above other students and didn't seem very welcoming. In my four years of high school I wish I had had the confidence to tell myself to stick it up their butts and join to make myself happy, to not care what they think and just enjoy what I could while I had the chance.

On Administration & Policies: I was never a student to get into trouble in high school. I respected my fellow students and teachers while hoping I was being a good role model for my peers. Though I do remember being reminded a few times to put my cell phone away I was in no way near some of the others who were reminded daily. I also was never reminded of the dress code (mainly because my parents surveyed my attire before I left each morning) either. However, I think if students parents aren't going to stop them from walking out of the house in a tight skirt that shows the skin of their buttocks and a top that can barely pass as a piece of fabric then the school should. Being such a large high school some students were sent home to change, though in my and many fellow students, not nearly enough.

On Food: I preferred to bring my own lunch to school. I would say in the four years of attending this high school I maybe ate school lunch a total of 4 times. It just never seemed like the quality and quantity was worth the price, and I was also able to manage my diet and eat healthier by bringing my own food. The cafeteria was regularly very clean, though I recommend making the large table groups of students who get up and carelessly leave ALL their trash on the tables forced to assist the janitorial services on cleaning the lunch room. There are also limited amount of times on the snack machines. I understand the school doesn't want students to leave class to wander the halls and buy snacks during class periods, however the snack machines were commonly turned off during lunches and after school. Being a student athlete I would have enjoying a snack before leaving for practices or games when I didn't have one from home and I'm sure I wasn't alone in that preference.

On Sports & Fitness: I'm not involved with it.
