    Overall Experience: The IB is a great program and definitely worth the time and effort, but a lot of the time I do not feel like the school does it justice. Overall students come out with decent IB scores, but since I went to a completely IB middle school and first year of high school, the understanding of the IB program is definitely limited.

    Overall Experience: The IB program was both very challenging and very rewarding. The staff and community were some of the best, most helpful people I've ever met, and the only thing I would change is that they deserve more money and better facilities for all the hard work the teachers put in.

    Extracurriculars: I think that they could be a bit better considering that a lot of times administration does not always allow us to do the activities we want even when teachers are behind it.

    Health & Safety: I never feel unsafe and I know that many of my classmates agree.

    Food: I do not normally eat the food, but the snacks are pretty good and I feel like I have a variety.
