    Health & Safety: It's a very safe environment for students with excellent care of the students from the nurse. The nurse is very friendly and funny towards the students.

    Food: Their are always the same options for the packaged food which is very unhealthy and greasy. The food specials are usually better quality than the packaged food.

    Sports & Fitness: ASB and the administrators are always trying to raise school spirit by having spirit days which is when we wear school colors. They also try to motivate the students by feeding them lunch if they have perfect attendance.
