    Extracurriculars: We don't have but one or two clubs. They are generally inactive. Many people just go home and watch Netflix and waste their lives away verses finding something meaningful/worthwhile to do.

    Overall Experience: The teachers are very generous with the time they invest in their students outside of school. I don't know many students from other schools that can say they've been to as many teachers houses as I have. My advisor saw that my math grade wasn't the best so she invited me over to her house for tea and help studying. I also have gotten lunch with multiple teachers just to gain some wisdom. They are some of the sweetest most genuine people.

    Teachers: I've noticed that the athletic department is priority for BA. Many of the students that are involved with football or track are given more disciplinary grace verses the kids that aren't as athletic. Also, if a parents donates a lot of money to BA they will threaten the school that they'll stop investing money if their child has to pay the consequences for their negative actions.
