    Sports & Fitness: large school, lots of students , small team per each sport . Unless you are the in the topof each sport you are not going to be playing a sport. Except for maybe cross country. Otherwise hard to be a member of the teams.

    Resources & Facilities: REally could use some modern computers. the ones they have are so obsolete. Would be nice to have something set up to help find scholarships.

    Administration & Policies: I think overall they do well. one thing i think is unfair is that they have a dress code but they are inconsistent about who they enforce it on. They seem intimated by certain students and allow them to dress against the dresscode. I have had my child told the outfit was inappropriate(though she has wore in to church and junior leadership programs with no problem) and when i came in with a change of clothes for her, saw other girls dressed inappropriately and no one stopping them. I have heard other parents complain of the same problem. It seems a discriminatory policy is applied.
