    Health & Safety: I think the clinic program is one thing the school should take into further consideration. The nurses should not be traveling to all parts of the school in order to get to one student. Either hire more nurses or change the policies so other students wont have to wait in order to be helped.

    Overall Experience: My favorite times at the high school is when I as active in the schools spirit team. The football games and competitions were the most exciting times I've had, as well as my family's.

    Food: The menu is not diverse as it was when i was a freshman but is still very adamant. The only really healthy alternatives are the salads, which are very filling and tasteful in my opinion. With new administration came new snack options which are not as great used to be.

    Administration & Policies: I think the staff at my school try their best to put out awareness of bullying but seem to focus more on things such as tardies and dress codes before they would attempt to help a struggling student.

    Sports & Fitness: The overall fan support of the East Central District is above exhilarating. The attendance of the athletics games are more than supported. Not only by family members but also by other parts of the sports teams.
