    Food: There's decent lunch options. I bring my lunch, but there's usually subs, burgers, pizza, pre-prepared salads, milk, fruit, and then there are entrees that change every day, like spaghetti or chicken nuggets. Next year, the school is trying to get a sushi bar. The cafeteria is usually pretty clean, until kids come and leave their trash. However, it's cleaned up by the custodial staff. I wouldn't say it's good value. If you don't have Free/Reduced lunch, then it costs $2.75 for an entree, a piece of fruit (apple or orange), some type of side, and milk or juice. As far as healthy, I wouldn't be able to say. We don't know exactly what they put in the food, or what ingredients are used, besides the raw foods, like fruit. Snacks include chips, usually for purchase, smoothies, and I think that's it.

    Resources & Facilities: College prep is very good you just have to go and ask for it, technology is prevalent and most of the time you can use your phones to help on assignments, bathrooms are in pretty poor conditions, some have the sinks ripped off and never any toilet paper.

    Academics: AP and honor classes offer the best education as on level classes lack in good student teacher relationships and are often disrupted by disrespectful kids.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Very diverse, so many different backgrounds, races, sexual orientations, also a lot of drug users, drinkers, kids skipping classes, but thats what you get when you go to a school in the middle of Atlanta, theres a little bit of everything, and its a cool experience most of the time, you really get exposed to things that students at a private school wouldn't.

    Health & Safety: Our nurse really is non existent, the school is very easy to get into without needing to sign, people skip all the time, the police officers are very attentive though, and do there job pretty well.
