    Teachers: Some teachers care and some teachers don't. Of course that is at every school but with every teacher I have had only few showed some type of fairness to all students. In fact my English teacher I had my junior year was not fair at all and was very picky. She never graded anything on time and was late when progress reports and report card dead lines came. She wasn't very respectful either and was also very prejudice. It was awful.

    Extracurriculars: There are so many types of clubs that anyone who wants to be in one has to be able to find one. And the sports are also varied. There is all the sports options available and good coaches for all
