    Extracurriculars: The performing arts programs at my school are excellent. We have an award winning marching band and the choirs and drama programs are all good. The dance program is lacking. Sports on the other hand needs some help. Other than the Crew Teams the sports teams are not that good.

    Administration & Policies: The administration rules with an iron fist. Teachers are afraid to stick up for themselves and their students. The principal bullies students and teaching staff.
