    Overall Experience: Leaping from school to school to school made things incredibly interesting perspective-wise.

    From a totalitarian, structured, fall in line military school life at Valley Forge, to a more laid-back yet still just as structured life at East Nashville Magnet, to the woes and terror of IB at Hillsboro, I can safely say that I wish I had stuck around at Valley Forge, oh man.

    Food: The food is alright and edible but not a four-star restaurant by any means at all.

    Administration & Policies: Given the fact that a majority of the reasons I get on trouble are only punished with a slight reprimand or parent meeting, I don't really know or understand how a lot of punishments work in Hillsboro.

    Sports & Fitness: I'm not a fan of all the sports, but it's certainly clear it means a lot to certain people.

    Teachers: Fun lessons from teachers who clearly love their job.
