    Health & Safety: Overall, there have been great improvements for safety of students. Bully-free zones were implemented, and more measures were taken to ensure that students feel safe

    Food: I would always bring my own lunch because the cafeteria did not provide food that was even remotely healthy, or appealing to look at.

    Administration & Policies: When there were actual problems (students misbehaving), the administration was very good about handling the situations, however they seemed to pay more attention to irrelevant "problems" (i.e. girls and dress code violations) than any of the situations that could actually be problematic in the learning environment

    Sports & Fitness: Some athletic facilities are better than others; it is clear that more money is put into the facilities of the "better sports teams" than the general population who uses/has access to facilities.

    Teachers: Although there are some great teachers, there were multiple who did not go above or beyond or even seem to try to make students comprehend the material, just rushed students to get through everything.
