    Extracurriculars: There a huge variety of clubs and activities, it would be impossible to list all of them in one place, a lot of them are student run which makes it so much more fun

    Teachers: The teachers at this school are amazing. They always try to include a variety of different materials into the curriculum, experiment with teaching styles to meet individual students demands, also always very knowledgeable on the subjects and open to meet after school and communicate at all times.

    Extracurriculars: They have a lot of options, and most of the clubs meet during school during our free block. However, with the sports of the school they are poor. The lacrosse team was a mess and most of the coaches were horrible,

    Overall Experience: I like the school a lot however personally I fell like there are times where the school takes a whole day about important topics. But that takes time away from learning. Personally I believe that if there was an option to go to these assemblies or stay and continue learning that would be a big help to adding on to my experience.
