    Sports & Fitness: I did tennis, football, and practiced with the track team. I practiced or played on every field except for the softball field and the soccer field. the soccer field is getting torn down for the highway that this going by my old school no so that grade is irrelevant now. Hunter just needs more funding and that school could be state champs in many sports. the students are willing the funding is not.

    Overall Experience: it did the job the friends i met and still have today are what make this experience great. Get some funding to the poor west side school and this school would more then compete with east side schools we would win

    Teachers: I took many college oriented classes. AP classes, Concurrent enrollment, honor classes. The teachers i had were great because they went above and beyond to a college level. However i heard many students did not have the same advantages with the regular teachers. The students who did not challenge themselves sometimes found less then motivated teachers
