    Sports & Fitness: Can't really tell you a detailed review because I never participated in school sports, not even attended a game. But what I hear from others is that the coaches have a sort of favoritism with players, which complicates team performance.

    Educational Outcomes: Academically, I was prepared for college because I took AP courses, the most challenging courses in the school.

    Health & Safety: The school is pretty chill for the most part. You will never hear of someone getting bullied, not physically at least. The security guards do their job but I don't like how they make friends with the popular students and trying to be sneaky with them.
