    Sports & Fitness: The Football/soccer field needs some serious improvement and the students aren't as supportive of their athletics but I think if it was encouraged more and made as something to come to student participation would increase.

    Teachers: I haven't had the greatest experience ever. sometimes I have felt like no matter how hard I try its never good enough and there is some bias toward some students over others.

    Extracurriculars: The graduating senior class isn't very involved but that's not the case for all the classes. It depends on the students and how much they choose to be involved. The best way is to be in a sport or band or drama.

    Overall Experience: I am so happy I was able to attend this school for all four years. We have a great athletic program and academic program.

    Food: The school has salads every day but the food carts serve very unhealthy snacks like chips and cookies and that is not healthy for high school kids to eat every day.
