    Overall Experience: I would have never taken Algebra 2 with Trigonometry, because the class itself was a trainwreck-teacher and students included. My favorite experiences actually happened outside of school with my friends, but I still had a pretty good time with teachers and the classes I had like Office Aide and Library Aide.

    Food: I have no clue-a recurring theme, isn't it? I actually never ate the school lunch and spent most of my lunchtime thinking what everyone else was eating was gross-including steak nuggets and the baked potato chips-which is part of the reason why I brought my own lunch. It's not that the food was gross-I don't know if it was-I'm just a picky eater.

    Administration & Policies: Our dress code is not very strict. The staff have always cracked down on sagging pants, and recently they've disallowed beanies being worn. Attendance only becomes a problem if your grades begin to slip.

    Sports & Fitness: I have next to no knowledge of the school's athletic side; it's never interested me much, so I have no idea about the quality of the teams or how many students actually go to the games, though spirit weeks and pep rallies usually have quite a huge turn-out. There is quite a lot of hype for those, especially from the senior classes every year.

    Teachers: A few wayward teachers are to be expected, but for the most part the ones I've had have been very helpful. They weren't hard to approach and they always encouraged note-taking, which is something that has helped me a lot through the years.
