    Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I choose not to go back to the school. I will miss the school and the pride that is in it, but there were some things that I disliked. The school itself is a healthy environment, but there are some students who may think otherwise.

    Food: The food menus are okay, but are not what many students would like to eat. There are healthy food options and salad to choose if students do not want any hot meals.

    Administration & Policies: The dress code is very strict but there are a few that slide through the cracks.
