    Health & Safety: The school has taken many steps to become very safe with students in mind. The nurses are very helpful and care for all students.

    Food: We have a lot of somewhat healthy snacks and drinks, such as muffins, tea, naked juice, and baked chips. The school lunches are nothing special.

    Administration & Policies: I am not really sure, my friends and I do not get in serious trouble for anything. As for the principle's involvement I just found out that we had one, no one see him that I know of. We mostly speak with the deans or guidance counselors.

    Sports & Fitness: All of the facilities are high quality and amazing. The fitness program is very diverse, there are physical education classes that are made fun with rope and rock wall climbing. School spirit is a pretty big deal, we have a lot of pep rallies for teams and we award high placing athletes with their own day.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers are amazing, they will help students accomplish everything for colleges to not overlook them, but they also can be very boring and lessons can be confusing.
