    Teachers: The teachers of the school are very knowledgeable and friendly. In my experience most teachers I had (and loved) were like parent figures to me.

    Extracurriculars: In my personal experience I was a part of the basketball team, track team, and the National Honor Society. Each group that I was in was well respected among the school and outside community. Each group helped with numerous volunteer activities such as blood drives, basketball camps, and other numerous engagements. We received support from the faculty and staff of the school, for the most part the faculty and staff were the advisers/coaches of the groups.

    Educational Outcomes: The AP (advance placement) courses that were offered at the high school really prepared me for what college course were going to be like. I believe that if all the regular and advanced courses at the school were similar to how college course are (how the rigor and amount of work may be), especially for junior and senior level course it would better prepare those students who are seeking a secondary education.

    Overall Experience: If I could do it again I would definitely choose to stay at this school. The experiences I've had at this school have been very impactful on me. The thing that makes this school unique is the unity between the students.

    Food: The cafeteria is okay. The menu offers a pretty good variety of food. In my opinion there are to many healthy food options. There is a good variety of snacks to choose from.
