    Extracurriculars: There were many different clubs at my school. Many were to help govern the school like SGA, or to help the community in some way like key club and green club. There was a good variety so everyone had the possibility of fitting in somewhere.

    Administration & Policies: We got a new principle my junior year of school and she made a lot of good changes with regard to the dress code and the assistant principles. Our previous principle did not change much, and wasn't open to changes.

    Student Culture & Diversity: The social scene included many student extracurricular activities with a wide range of interests. There were not many problems with peer pressure and acceptance. There also weren't problems with racial diversity, but there was a discrimination against openly gay students.
