    Overall Experience: I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    Food: They have a lot of options but we have an open campus policy for lunch so anyone who can drive usually leaves for lunch. They have salads, fruits, etc. but nothing for gluten free people.

    Administration & Policies: I feel as though the policies are in place but it depends on who you are if they are followed. For example, dress code is there but will be overlooked if an argumentative teen is not following it.

    Sports & Fitness: We have a new football stadium. This is also our soccer field and where we do track. The rest of our facilities are average. Our school spirit is very intense. We love our mascot and it goes back for generations. We always have a good turn out for football games especially the homecoming game.

    Teachers: Teachers range from great to bad at our school. Some of them need to retire but others make the learning fun.
