    Academics: As I said earlier, I don't actually go here, i'm just reviewing it. Thus, it doesn't really apply to me.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Public high school, I can't say it's 100% accepting, because it's not.

    Extracurriculars: I'm just reviewing the school, I don't actually attend Senior. I go to a lot of their events though, and it looks like they are pretty diverse in all their extracurricular activities.

    Overall Experience: When you walk into the school, there's a feeling of acceptance. In the other high schools like West and Skyview, you walk in and everyone instantly judges and hates you. Senior wasn't near as bad.
