    Health & Safety: Our security staff is well equipped and always on duty. We have fairly strict rules for leaving and entering campus. We construct random drug dog tests and also have monthly fire drills. We have occasional tornado drills and emergency lockdown drills. The students are well aware of what their options are if they ever feel unsafe. The school is located in Cary, North Carolina and it's an incredibly safe city. The school nurse is available most days.

    Extracurriculars: There are over 100 clubs for students to be involved in that don't include any type of sport. In addition, if you wanted to create a club for something you are interested in, it is not difficult to find a teacher who would support you and create the club. I created my own club for something I was passionate about and I had really great attendance and I was easily able to participate in 3 other clubs that I enjoyed. Also we offer an opportunity to play almost any sport you can think of and each of them is very talented and competitive.

    Overall Experience: My school is an impressive combination of great academics and great athletics. There is great pride in the school not just for being the number one athletics school in the state but also a very high graduation rate. The students always are striving to do their best and we send the majority of our students to incredibly prestigious universities after graduation. I loved all of the student involvement in clubs, athletic events, and high level courses. It is a big school but the class sizes are reasonable and the teachers are very fun. I really enjoyed all of the people I met and how students were able to create opportunities for the things that interested them.

    Teachers: More often than not, you will receive teachers who are incredibly knowledgeable about the subject they are teaching. They are all so eager to learn more and make sure that your questions get answered. Each has a unique teaching style that they implement to make sure there is variety and excitement in your learning.
