    Food: The cafeteria serves school lunch that is either free or not depending on family salary and other things. The school lunch is unhealthy. There are food trucks outside that provide other alternatives, but students often buy unhealthy food from them as well.

    • 3
    Sports & Fitness: The school doesn't really focus a lot on sports. There is no football team, and there is no pool either, but the swimming team goes to another school for the pool.

    Teachers: Overall, the teachers provide great instruction and engaging classroom instruction. However, there are a few rare occasions when the teacher may not be able to answer a question or sometimes the classwork is not engaging. The teachers are available for help most of the time, but not always.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular opportunities are varied. There is a large focus on the debate and robotics teams, and there are some small niche clubs that have a sense of community because they are small.

    Overall Experience: I have enjoyed the last 4 years, it's been long nights, great friends and great teachers
