    Health & Safety: The schools safety policy is enforced by the police officers that are the for the whole school day. I feel safe at my school I feel like nothing will happen to me. The officers at my school carry around their weapons with them. The advocates are also always on top of thing as well. We also have practice fire drills, lockdowns etc to prepare for safety hazards like that

    Extracurriculars: There are not too many after school activities at my school. Some kids just stay after school and get in trouble, or fight. My after school activities this year was football and basketball so far. We do have SGA and Theatre but that's about it to my knowledge. We have a closed campus so kids stay in school property

    Overall Experience: I like my school. I've been enrolled since freshman year and I really like it. I try to build a strong relationship with all my teachers because I'm aware that I might need them later in my high school career. I'm a 4 year varsity basketball player & we couldn't practice or play with our coming to school that day, so I kind of don't have a choice to come everyday. This school is so unique because of the teachers and advocates that work there, they make school worth while or in other words, fun.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at my school really car and try to help students, but some doesn't. I always tend to come after school for extra help because I have the time and to go to practice after school anyways. I would like if my teachers would teach lessons on more real life situations or even teach me how to fill out a W2. I think that would be helpful to me just as much as school related information is.

    Overall Experience: I wish our Athletic Director put more effort in our sports teams.
