    Health & Safety: I don't know too much on this, but I'd say it's good.

    Overall Experience: I think that this is a great school overall. I think that the teachers are very involved in their curriculum and genuinely care about their students. There are some teachers that I think are too lazy and don't know how to teach but no the subject themselves. I would not choose a school again because I would love to see a more diverse school. Otherwise my experience is subpar.

    Food: To be honest, I have never liked the schools lunches. I think that the bread is sometimes really hard or almost stale and that sack lunches are never fresh and that when they say healthy it is of the lowest quality of healthy. As in here some lettuce we bought from the store and that's a healthy part of this meal. There is an any like really healthy food. Nothing nutrient enriching or tasteful that makes you want to eat the food on your plate. This is why I mainly go out for lunch. I think this could be greatly improved on.

    Administration & Policies: I don't really see much happening and don't hear much of what happened after it. So, I'd say that either nothing much really happens (severely) or they do a good job of just keeping it down low. The only instances I can think of are the last year senior class and cross dress day. Seniors up until this year did not get in trouble for this day and it blew up to a news story and got a little out of hand with students having to call parents down for stupid reasons. We have a new principal now, so we'll see how everything goes this year. I think he's a cool guy and cares about his students so I feel we won't have any issues.

    Teachers: This really depends on the teacher. I'd say for the most part, yes. Most teachers genuinely care about their students. I have had several that have given up their time to help me with other classes other than the core curriculum that they teach. Other teachers, in my experience, do not answer questions to full extent. I have been left still not knowing the answer to my questions. I also see a lot of lecture based style learning in AP classes. Yes, I know they are "college" classes, but I also know we are still in high school and believe that lecture style isn't as effective as other ways of learning. I feel like it's a more lazy way to "teach". Not all students grasp the concepts at hand. I often find myself using other resources and asking more unanswered questions from other resources to help teach the subject to myself.
