    Food: Its a typical high school cafeteria, nothing too great. I brought my food most every day.

    Administration & Policies: I never had an issue following the rules, so I am a little out of the loop when it comes to how punishment was dealt with inside school. I had one brush with administration my senior year when I wore shorts that were too short. I was immediately sent home for the day during my fourth period class, which felt like a reward instead of a punishment.

    Sports & Fitness: You could definitely tell that the administration and sports department of the school favored football. Everything else fell a little short.

    Teachers: A few teachers stick out in my mind as being hard working, caring, and intelligent in their work. You could tell that they really cared about how well their students were doing, and I appreciated their approach. However, I also had teachers who could care less about their students, and didn't take students advice when it came to their teaching styles.

    Extracurriculars: During my time at Meadowbrook I participated all four years on the varsity soccer team, I enjoyed being part of a team and staying in shape throughout school. I also participated in DECA, Current Events, and International Affairs. The specialty program of this school was International Baccalaureate which I also participated in.
