    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
