On Food: I don't eat in the cafeteria much, but the food is about average. Our cafeteria workers are really sweet, though!

On Administration & Policies: Since we got our new principal, there have been a lot of great changes made. Our other new administrators are also doing a great job, and some of the administrators that stayed on after Mr. Wallace retired are really doing a great job, too.

On Academics: While some teachers are a tad eclectic, we have some really fantastic teachers. Our scheduling could use a little help in a lot of ways, but for the most part, we all do alright with it.

On Sports & Fitness: While there is a lot of team spirit at our school, our football team only wins about twice in a season. Our other teams are doing well, for the most part.

On Extracurriculars: While our school has many opportunities to be involved in various organizations, we have no FFA or 4-H, which has been a slight issue for me, because I would have very much liked to be involved in these organizations.
