    Academics: Academics and curriculum is average. Everybody works hard when they need to. The workload is good amount and even though many complain, it's not impossible.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There are some people who have issues with cursing and having an attitude with others. There is a good amount of learning competition in the environment. On average, I've taken five AP courses my school year and they are challenging but it's not impossible. Most student s do complain of the amount of work but it's easy to see that it is the student's fault for not putting the time into the work. Student involvement is high and there are not many challenges to someone's culture and diversity.

    Extracurriculars: So many activities and so many opportunities. It's something worth considering. There is a good amount of people here that participate and do what they can to progress themselves. All sports are attentive to.

    Teachers: It is on average. Most teachers at the school are into teaching the subject and care for our progress in class. Oh ace noticed that some elective teachers seem not so attentive of others or show much care for what happens.

    Health & Safety: From what I've seen, there is just an average amount of students who do anything drug related (not me). It's expected that most high schools have dealt with this but our high school is just as much into it.
