    Sports & Fitness: We have pretty good sports facilities such as our gym and turf field. our track is also pretty good. the sports equipment is average and the fitness room is a bit outdated and lacking.

    Teachers: Our school has very good teachers, especially the AP teachers. Almost all the teachers care a lot about their students and are very helpful. Although there are some less motivated teachers most of the teachers are very helpful and caring.

    Food: The food here does not seem to be of good quality at all, but I do keep in mind that it is difficult to feed the amount of students at my school. More times than not, there is not a fruit or vegetable on my friends trays (I am only talking from observation because I refuse to buy school lunch at my school), and if there is a fruit or vegetable it is extremely unappetizing (ex: moldy or bruised apples/bananas). I do not necessarily think this is the faculties fault, they for the most part appear to be very friendly. I do not think the portion sizes are large enough for anyone, and that is if the student eats everything on their tray, which is rare, and the cost to buy extras is too high to do that every day. There used to be snack machines in my school but they were taken away so there aren't really any good options if you don't want to buy the school food.
