    Health & Safety: There are a lot of safety measures at the school. The nurses are alright though, most of them try to give you either something to help with the pain or just have you call home. Either way, its a safe enough school.

    Extracurriculars: There is a variety of extracurricular activities, but that doesn't make up for the quality of them. A lot of them look under funded and don't seem to have many resources.

    Overall Experience: School was fun. I really loved hanging in the classroom during lunch in order to get work done. However the school events could have used some work and our football team wasn't really the best.
