On Food: The menu doesn't vary much week to week and is very starchy a lot of the time. The salad option still isn't very healthy as it has a lot of unneeded additions.

On Overall Experience: My favorite thing about this school has to be the choir program. I spend a lot of time in the arts department, and it has helped me to grow out of my shell and become my own person.

On Health & Safety: Our school police officer is one of the best, and he makes it a priority to know his students. We have a school nurse who is only able to be their some days because we share her with the middle school, but she's fantastic.

On Resources & Facilities: Resources in applying for college are limited and finding scholarships is difficult; you pretty much have to do it on your own. But the school all in all is a pretty good quality building.

On Teachers: Many teachers go the distance for what they need to teach their students. A couple teachers aren't as good at teaching as others, but they put in extra hours to make sure students understand the content.
