    Extracurriculars: It's hard to join clubs and participate because teachers are constantly piling homework on us. Also coaches are strict about attendances. When you do have time you have a lot of fun

    Overall Experience: Kids here are childish but the close friends I have really help me through my 4 years here. Overall experience is okay because of class restrictions and rules in general

    Teachers: I like the school I really do. The education you get here is great but I wish we didn't have to take theology because it's an awful class and useless... maybe have it once or twice a week but everyday? I want to learn something useful.
