    Teachers: Extremely few cases (probably just 1 or 2) that can think of where I thought was not being very helpful with students or did not meet some general requirements/expectations that come with being a teacher.

    Academics: Between the genuinely interested teachers, homework load, getting into the class you want, I rate it really good. There are always going to be the disinterested teacher(s), clicks and emphasis on athletics over social clubs, but that's at every school and most likely always will be. I very much look forward to college to experience what I believe will be a completely different academic environment with out negative aspects!

    Student Culture & Diversity: I believe, as with most schools, there are the clicks: cheerleaders, jocks, geeks. And there's the general population (which is the majority) where the students pretty much all get along with each other.
