    Academics: Due to this school providing AP and IB courses, it puts it ahead of other schools that do not have the same curriculum.

    Academics: Yes there is a wide variety of classes, but the problem are the counselors. They will force you into classes you do not want in order to knockout more credits. they want the best for you in the end, but say you don't plan on going to college, they will still try to get you into classes, that you don't need, for college. the work load in most classes are fair, the IB classes are tiring for most.

    Health & Safety: The school never had a problem with any issues health wise while I attend. I am not sure if it was because the school actively looked out for any concerns, or if all the students never wanted to harm one another by sneaking in objects to harm others. there is one officer at the school usually and I have never seen him have to do anything to keep the peace besides just be present. Most polices surrounding health and safety are reasonable and fair.

    Extracurriculars: The administration fully supports all extracurricular activities in any was possible. The Football program, in which I have played all four years, was great and always put the student player's health first no matter what. The different clubs would always be able to announce their meeting times during Charger Time, which isn't a thing now. The school as a majority supported most of the sports that were played by going out to the games to show their support.
