On Educational Outcomes: It's a normal small-town school. It did what it was intended to and it did help me grow into a different person. The teachers are relatively helpful and the atmosphere is okay.

On Health & Safety: I am not aware of any health programs. The school nurse is only available two days throughout the week. If you are sick, need medicine or any other health related issues, the only other options is to call home or leave school. Safety wise, I do like the new doorbell you have to ring from outside the main office and state your reasons for coming and then the doors will unlock. Although if their was an incidents, i believe the teachers would try their best to protect us, but I do not believe our one safety office would not be able to handle a situation. In school if feel somewhat safe but no where as near comfortable as i would in my own home. As far as bulling it is not tolerated .

On Sports & Fitness: As far as athletic facilities, from what I have heard, it's not great all at and the teams usually have to go somewhere else besides the school to train. Team performance are excellent. Especially, boys soccer, girls volleyball, and tennis. The only fitness program is weight training but I do not believe it's for non-athletes. School spirit can be low. Pep rallies are almost non-existence where my school MAY have 4 for football if not less. I feel very little excitement during the pep rallies from the students in the gym. The most important thing is the the students do cheer on and support the teams during school hours as well.

On Student Culture & Diversity: Students are absolutely horrible to those that are different. I personally know a Jewish student that was ridiculed for her religion, a transsexual student who was bullied by virtually everyone, a special education student who was photographed using the bathroom and a girl who was voted homecoming queen as a joke. The student body at South Aiken high is disgusting, but unfortunately so is most of this generation.

On Food: There are very few options in the school cafeteria. The food often times looks very unappetizing, there's a salad bar that is hardly never used and then there are vending machines that contain unhealthy snack foods.
