    Overall Experience: Cedar Shoals High School is really great so far. The school offers a great deal of diversity concerning its distribution with sports, liberal arts, fine arts and cultures.

    Administration & Policies: Laughably ineffective, with little to no respect from students or teachers.

    Extracurriculars: The quality of clubs varies widely amongst the options, mostly dependent on the teacher sponsoring it. Additionally, the administration was adamantly against the start of a GSA, and had to be threatened with a law suit/ACLU action to allow the club to start.

    Overall Experience: I had a great experience at this school. I joined many extra curriculum activities, and enjoyed them all. One of the was the JROTC Raider team and it was my favorite after school activity. I have seen how other teams have also brought the Athens community together.

    Food: The cafeteria is cleaned every lunch period by very nice staff. There are at least three food choices for those who are not vegetarian, but mostly only salad for those who are.
