    Educational Outcomes: This school is pretty bad at preparing you for the read world. The curriculum is not rigorous at all, and it doesn't teach you a sense of working for anything.

    Sports & Fitness: My school doesn't have fitness opportunities for the school. We do have an athletic facility but it is only used for the football players and not for all athletics involved. We have the basic programs like football, basketball, baseball and track. I wish they could offer dance, fitness program, tennis, soccer and etc.
