    Food: There is no variety and other options for students that are vegan, diabetic, glucose intolerant, etc. We usually have the same menu about every week.

    Administration & Policies: The administration staff is very withdrawn and not very involved. They think being late is worse than getting into a fist fight with someone or smoking on campus.

    Sports & Fitness: I feel as though football is the glory sport here. They get new uniforms and equipment more than any other sports team here.

    Teachers: Some teachers are more dedicated than others. Most won't stay after school to offer assistance. Overall most are very caring and help when needed.
