    Extracurriculars: There are so many different options of clubs and extra-curriculars and that's really nice to have available to explore your interests and try out different things. Some clubs require a lot more commitment than others, for example American Sign Language Club meets once a week, so it's not as big of a commitment as opposed to Drama Club which, if you are in a play or show, requires hours and hours of after school time and work put in. I believe there is a good amount of administration support as well.

    Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences that I've had didn't necessarily happen at school. I was fortunate enough to go on multiple trips with choir and drama club including to Washington D.C. and London, England, and those were incredible experiences. Also, all of the opportunities I've had to be in plays and musicals at my school have definitely been favorite experiences, including other smaller events as well such as choir retreats and concerts. I would choose this school again because I believe it is overall a very good school with very good work ethic and good academic rates, lots of clubs and sports available to choose from, and overall it's just a very good place.

    Teachers: All of the teachers I had, for the most part, I was really able to connect with and build good relationships with. They were all very strong teachers, very knowledgeable, very good at communicating, and they definitely had an interest in their students and the well being of their students. However, there wasn't always consistency in grading which got a little confusing sometimes.

    Overall Experience: The variety of classes offered is amazing. There are so many different AP courses to choose from, from AP Human Geography to AP Biology to AP Physics to AP Music Theory. The art courses are also very extensive. The school also gets good funding and many of the students are very smart and good academic peers. That said, the school lacks diversity and sometimes I feel like the administration (and select teachers) doesn't want to help students who learn at an accelerated pace.
