    Extracurriculars: There are a whole bunch of different clubs and organizations in this school. Just about anyone and everyone can and should get involved in at least two clubs.

    Overall Experience: I really learned to open up while attending this school. I started out not knowing a single living soul, to becoming captain of two varsity teams. It's really been a great experience, and although it had its up's and down's, I still learned from it and I think that's what really matters.

    Teachers: For the most part, the teachers i've had are great. There has been some that were hard to deal with, or just were not passionate about their teachings, which bores me to death.

    Overall Experience: I was new in 11th grade so I have another school to compare this one to. The bathrooms are not clean at all. Most are located outside without a door so it's very hot and humid and stinks very badly. I shouldn't have to dread going to use the restroom. I am also very unhappy with the dress code. At my old school, there was not a strict dress code. I went to a great school--very similar to Stoneman Douglas academically--and the dress code was nowhere near this strict. At Stonaman Douglas we are not allowed to wear shirts where shoulders are exposed. Shorts have to go down to the knees. No hats are allowed. I think this should be changed. It gets very hot in Florida. Tank tops at least should be allowed. Implementing these strict regulations prevent students from showing their personal style. It inhibits self expression.

    Teachers: Some teachers are rude but there are a handful that are great at what they do. Others don't care, some complain or are unnecessarily harsh.
