    Overall Experience: Though it needs a little work, and the counselors need to be more specific on what to do when getting ready for college, the staff are very accepting of all sorts of people.

    Food: The fruit tastes like bugspray or styrafoam. The breakfasts are meager. The macaroni tastes like glue, and there is no salt or pepper anywhere in the lunchroom. If you want any seasoning, get the ranch. It's fully available.

    Administration & Policies: The dress-code can be more lax. There are no dress-code requirements for boys. If there is bullying, the teachers say that they'll "Give them a talk", but nothing changes.

    Sports & Fitness: We are required to go to pep-rallies that are deafening. The music hurts our ears and many people don't really care about the football team all that much. It's more of a chore than a spirit-boost.

    Teachers: Though there are many teachers that give out packets to finish, there are many teachers as well that make their curriculum engaging and interesting.
