On Student Culture & Diversity: The school is very cliquey, they don't let new people into their groups easily. You have to wiggle your way into ALL the groups.

On Resources & Facilities: We have a NEST hour, this allows students to go to their teacher and ask for help. This has two problems: either the students uses their time carelessly or the teachers are never available.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: We have the best sports in our county. Every sport that we have dominates.

High School Senior

On Teachers: Select few are outstanding teachers but most of them just go through the curriculum in a basic way that no one can learn from

High School Junior

On Health & Safety: The policy for bullying at my school is a no tolerance policy, however I do not feel that as many people report it as they should. Drugs and drinking are incredibly prevalent amongst students at school, and when they are caught, the school system handles it very well. Safety is important at school. The nurse is kind and helpful, the school officer is very alert and attentive as well as the administrators. I have seen a drop in the number of physical fights at school due to intervention by adults.
