    Overall Experience: I love Kofa, it has a beautiful large campus and it has a lot of amazing people there. Everyone id so friendly except for the freshmen , they have gotten in too many fights for dumb reasons.

    Teachers: Teachers at Kofa are fun and engaging ,but they also seem scared to stand up for what they really believe in. Those teachers that do always end up being scared "straight" by the district (which is very lousy).

    Health & Safety: Since there has been several fights this year there must be something wrong. The security and police sometimes arrive late to the fights and don't stop them on time.

    Extracurriculars: They are good but it takes away time from students to do their homework. Student put more thought into the extracurricular activities than their grades.
