    Health & Safety: I felt very safe at this school. They made sure that we were aware of the different ways they try to keep us safe. We participated in many different safety drills such as tornado drills and fire drills. The school was equipped with security cameras. The doors were always locked and student ID's were required. Bullying was non-tolerable at this school, but yet sometimes it still went on, but overall based on Health and safety of the school it does great.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities were great. there were always a club to join or something to be apart of. There was best friends club, recycling club, HOSA, and much more. The groups typically were flexible with how much time you could commit.

    Overall Experience: The school itself is very team spirited with lots of nice people, but much like the typical high school is filled with all types of different cliques. The teachers are friendly, but do not do a good job at preparing for college. It is a very rich town with lots of people who act like they do not know what hard work is, because their parents do everything for them. Despite the negatives I actually had some great memories at this school. A few of my favorite experiences were at the Friday night football games when we would make signs, paint ourselves white and blue, and cheer on our Friendswood Mustangs!

    Teachers: Teachers are pretty good, but I do not think the teachers probably prepare the students for college and what to expect when they get there.
