    Student Culture & Diversity: People at my school are very accepting with anything from sexual orientation or cross dressing to different races. My school is very diverse racially and there has not been any problems about that. Everyone is very open minded and don't seem phased by anything that may be a problem at a different school.

    Academics: I am in ib so the workload is extra for me. But it is still very overwhelming along with playing sports and being involved in a club that take up a lot of my spare time. Scheduling is easy and quick. There are also many different kinds if classes to take besides the basic requirements such as criminal justice or an African studies class.

    Health & Safety: I feel the school is pretty safe. There is a large gate surrounding it so not just anyone can get inside and there is a bell that must be rung in order for the doors to unlock for anyone to get inside.

    Extracurriculars: There are many different clubs and sports to participate in. There I'd even a bowling and golf team which is not at many highschools.
