    Health & Safety: Never been to the nurse, people go their to take naps. A lot of people do drugs and drink during lunch, plenty come to class stoned or drunk. A good amount have sex. We've had a few serious accidents and deaths because of drugs, alcohol, and suicide.

    Food: Never ate in the cafeteria or their "food" but it looked gross to me. The lines are long and none of it is appealing. The Den used to have chikfila and pizza until the new "healthy food" thing happened, now they sell a chikfila substitute with gross bread and fake meat?

    Administration & Policies: The most annoying thing is if you have 2+ tardies you get a referral. It keeps students from coming to class. They'd rather be absent than tardy. Other than that, there are fights occasionally. There's a new attendance administrator so be careful about attendance failures.

    Sports & Fitness: I didn't do a school sport, so I'm not an expert on rating this. I absolutely hated my high school and went to 1 pep rally. Didn't go to a single athletic event. Our football teams sucks, but I will brag on our boys soccer team. STATE CHAMPS.

    Teachers: Each teacher is different, and to be honest, not every teacher knows what they're doing. They aren't all qualified to teach... Grading is usually consistent within the class. Each teacher communicated differently. You can't pick your teachers, unfortunately...
