    Overall Experience: The tennis courts were bad all four years I played and the only sport that had funding was wrestling. We were in the hardest sports district in Utah when we are selves were never very good at anything but wrestling. The teachers and staff never really pushed us. I remember the senior orientation was please come to class and we will graduate you. I just wasnt impressed with what was offered. There were good people there though.

    Overall Experience: This school was great, many of the teachers really cared for their student's, and did everything possible to help each one of them succeed. They made class time challenging but enjoyable.

    Academics: I don't feel like we have enough academics, they should provide more options for us. We get a lot of work thrown at us the first 2 weeks of school which is like a slap in the face for the sophmores who have no idea how high school even works yet.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Races stay usually among each other we hardy mix, peer pressure is big and acceptance is hard to come by.

    Health & Safety: If we have a nurse I've never heard about them, I don't think health program are even a thing here. People get bullied all the time but usually it doesn't get taken care of. I don't think there's really any "serious" gangs but there are people who would call themselves gang members.
