    Health & Safety: The safety at this school is great, there are always campus police around to monitor any situation. If there's not one in a particular area due to the school's large size, then the teachers around are very knowledgeable about what to do in any situation should one happen. The health programs and school nurse are always available regardless of whatever situation a student is going through. I believe overall the general safety of this school is good.

    Extracurriculars: There's a large number of different types of clubs and organizations for any interest a student might have. The most popular clubs are probably beta club which I believe most students are a part of, national honor society and honor band. There's multiple clubs for languages or robotics that also a large number of students participate in. All of the teacher that run or take part in these organizations are in it because of their real interest in what the program the student has chosen is all about.

    Teachers: All of the teachers I had while attending this school were extremely helpful to me. They went above and beyond to be available to help out if needed and to make class interesting. There were many classes I had where they did more than just traditional teaching. It was also clear that the teachers had a true interest in the subject they were teaching and wanted to spark that same interests in the students. In many classes, they did. The teachers I had in high school were actually the reason I chose my major and my minor. They had very consistent grading and stuck to their ways and if you ever questioned their methods they were more than happy to explain the reason behind it.
