    Health & Safety: The safety is not really that much of an issue, although it should be considering it is an outdoor school people can easily get on campus or students can easily harm one another.

    Food: The food has issues all the time, the cafeteria has roaches frequently running around, and the milk is expired from time to time.

    Administration & Policies: There is no consistency in the enforcement of polices, I have witnessed this with my own eyes. There is extreme favoritism and racial preference.

    Sports & Fitness: There is a wide range of opportunities available, however there is little to no funding unless it comes from fundraising or the students themselves.

    Teachers: Most teachers do not engage with students they just go with the daily routine. For most students to learn an engaged and enthusiastic teacher is needed, and that is not the case most times.
