On Food: The cafeteria is small and needs renovating. The food wasn't the worst but I am definitely glad I don't have to eat it any more.

On Resources & Facilities: The building itself was pretty old and bathrooms and lockers needed some updating. Renovated parts were a lot better. The technology and books were good quality. The guidance counsellors were a big help with college information.

On Academics: I felt like I got a lot out of my classes and the amount of work was typical. Some AP classes required a lot more effort and studying for the exams. Some elective classes were pointless while others were a lot of fun.

On Teachers: The teacher's who taught the honors or AP classes were great.

On Sports & Fitness: I knew a lot of people who participated in sports. It was a good experience. Students had a lot of school spirit, especially at football, basketball, and soccer games. They gym was redone and it looked pretty nice. The outdoor track isn't the best and could be fixed up. The football stadium stands are a lot nicer than other school's though.
