On Extracurriculars: It was okay,wasn't many opportunities for those who were not into sports.

On Administration & Policies: Administration seems to be fair when enforcing the rules. I do not have much experience with getting in trouble besides being late to class. The tardy policy requires you to go get a pass from an administrator if you're late. But this wastes valuable learning time.

On Sports & Fitness: School spirit is a big part of SPHS, especially during football season. Even when we don't do well, the games have a large turnout. I am not athletic, but there are many opportunities for those to get involved that want to.

On Health & Safety: The police and security are always on the lookout and are constantly intervening in any problems that may arise. Therefore, I always feel safe while at school. They go above and beyond to get to the bottom of any issues that may threaten a students health, well-being or safety.
