On Student Culture & Diversity: I wasn't aware of a lot of retraction, but I know there was some. There's always going to be people who are accepting of others and there's always going to be differing opinions on controversial issues, but this wasn't a major issue at this school.

On Overall Experience: Though I'm not a big fan of school in general I did enjoy my experience at Sunset and I have some really good and some not so good memories of my time there. It's important to get to know people and go outside of your comfort zone because that's the only way you'll thrive.

On Food: I didn't eat cafeteria food because I always brought my own lunch, but I didn't hear much complaining so I don't think it was bad. Most people get snack food from the student store, which takes cash and is pretty inexpensive. The cleanliness is average.

On Extracurriculars: There are a lot of extra-curricular activities available you just have to go looking for them. Some are really popular some only have a couple students in them.

On Health & Safety: There are always security guards around the school and there's one police officer stationed there as well. The school nurse is also the attendance lady which made things difficult at times. The school is fairly safe. I never felt nervous or unsafe, but there were a few drug busts during my years there and one weapon confiscation.
