    Academics: There are many AP and honors classes at the school and one can really heighten their education but there can be quite a bit of studying to do for those classes. Choosing classes is simple and easy. Teachers, almost all, are wonderful and accommodating. There are specialty classes available as well including: 911 Dispatch(which I took and have certifications for) and Pharmacy Technician. Also there are PLTW classes available including PBS, HBS which I both took and engineering classes as well.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There are so many different types of people at the school coming from different backgrounds and we've gotten foreign exchange students too! No one really cares who is what race or what sexual orientation, everyone is accepting and see each other more person to person rather than focusing on the differences(try to see what they have in common).

    Health & Safety: As soon as anyone passed out or had an issue the staff and teachers were there to help and the ambulance would come now and then. I felt safe in all situations, but that has to do with my personality as well. But the school never had any major issues and security/cops were around just in case(pretty reassuring) and many students would chat with the cops. I never really noticed any bullying, with the exception of some students making some idiotic jokes that did more harm to themselves than their target.

    Extracurriculars: There were many clubs to join and they varied greatly, unfortunately for me I wasn't able to personally experience the clubs as I was busy with my home life, but there are many opportunities at Center for students.

    Overall Experience: The academics in the school is high(at least in honors and ap classes) and even though there was quite a bit of work and stress, I would choose this school again and again. Unfortunately there were always some people who fought on campus but it never bothered or concerned me. What I really enjoyed was that my teachers would allow us to eat in the classroom during lunch and that made lunch better as I could be with my friends in the classroom and ask the teacher anything I needed.
