On Extracurriculars: The clubs at school are great, but there aren't that much. There could be more.

On Health & Safety: The school is on top of student safety. We have many security guards on campus patrolling the school. We are also required to wear school I.D.'s that are always visible so that the security staff knows their aren't any trespassers on campus.

On Academics: The teachers at my school are the best. They do everything they can to make sure students understand whatever they're teaching. Most of the teachers here are available during non-class hours so they can offer extra help to students who need it. Not to mention the teachers are very nice and they seem to enjoy their job.

On Resources & Facilities: They are always building new and beautiful buildings.

On Food: The schedule can be very repetitive but its decent for being free.
