    Educational Outcomes: Although I am not quite done with high school, I feel relatively prepared for the real world. Now that I am eighteen, my parents have let me start to do adult things on my own (i.e. manage money, taxes, etc.). I was slightly nervous in the beginning but now I have no stress doing things on my own. Also, my school was very helpful in helping me decide what to do after graduation. The guidance staff helped me realize that my passion in life is healthcare and I plan to major in nursing at UNCW in the fall.

    Food: The caf has good days, and not so good days. Lunch is usually okay and dinner is usually pretty good. There are a lot of varieties of healthy, different stations.

    Administration & Policies: The only thing is that if a student has a problem with you or anyone they can give you a no contact sheet meaning that you cant talk to them, on social media in school anywhere.
