High School Senior

On Overall Experience: Again… The demographic is HORRIBLE.

On Academics: The AP Classes are fairly difficult (AP BIOLOGY and AP CHINESE are a HUGE challenge) but as long as its not a math class, all honors level classes and lower are pretty easy to get A's in.

On Student Culture & Diversity: Just me personally, I don't like the demographic. Don't get me wrong, I'm African-American… but having so many African Americans at one school is doing me no favors.

On Sports & Fitness: The thing that I do most (physically) when I'm not in season for track is, working out regularly after school. Our weight room is horrible. Half of the machines have been broken for months, individual free-weights have been stolen (I can never find a 35 lbs for curls) and it is closed by 3:30 and open only three days a week on average.

On Resources & Facilities: Almost every class has a smart board, which is nice. But although there are computer and distance learning labs, they are often overbooked and over-scheduled by teachers. The projectors in the building have been replaced by smart boards, and there are no online classes available. Online classes would actually help, if a student were sick or absent from a period.
