    Food: The food is bad because while it is healthy it is disgusting and barely fills us up.

    Administration & Policies: I feel that if we didn't have assistant principles, the school would be way worse. Our principle is terrible and doesn't enforce much of any rule and he doesn't have any control over the school. Bullying is always reported and never handled so the situation always becomes a violent altercation. A child recently stabbed someone for bullying him and he was jumped by the whole family. The boy went to jail but he had already reported he was being bullied and it wasn't handled and now he's facing assault charges. It is beyond ridiculous that people's reports for bullying aren't taken serious and are not handled until it's too late.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular choices are great and there is s lot to choose from. You could play sports, be apart of an organization, or participate in the school's academic programs like like law and medical. Either way there is plenty to do after school and you will have fun while doing so.

    Health & Safety: The safety of the kids are first priority to the school's staff. They make sure everyone is safe and if they are not feeling well the school nurse is always available.
