    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of options available. There's an active anime club, the art club regularly paints murals around the school, the green club is very active, the gardening club works in the courtyards and is very inclusive, etc. The variety of sports and clubs available here is almost ridiculous.

    Overall Experience: Out of all of the high schools available to attend in my county, Broadneck is definitely one of the best. It hosts the music program of a performing and visual arts program in the county and there is a lot of dedication to this program on the part of the teachers and the parents.

    Teachers: The teachers at Broadneck are, for the most part, some of the most willing to go above and beyond for students that I've ever seen. There's so much support for activities, as well as understanding of a student's schedule outside of school. Some of the hours that the teachers spend before and after school are ridiculous, so they're always available or willing to make time. Many of the teachers also genuinely care about the students as well. Almost every teacher I've had in the three years that I've been here has made an effort to ask after how I was doing or keep up with me even after I left their class.

    Health & Safety: The school focuses on safety for everyone at all times.

    Extracurriculars: There is so many opportunities for all students. Many extra curriculums that are very diverse and open to everyone.
