    Extracurriculars: The after school activities are amazing at the school. Though few people know or attend, there are so many things to do after school hours. Sports, extracurricular, in need of studying; it's all there.

    Overall Experience: Most teacher I have met there are very helpful, the students are friendly as well. Though sometimes there are issues within classes, for example, getting off topic or teachers not engaging in their students' work. There are also let downs, barely any fun activities such as pep rallies. The school should do more for our fundings.

    Teachers: Teachers are mainly there when needed but they should include more interactive activities so that students will not do other things that aren't school related while in class.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Students are generally accepting of others as long as they are religious and heterosexual. It's very hard for students who are homosexual and non religious or non Christians. I often saw people getting made fun of because of their sexual orientation or foreign students being made fun of because of their accents or inability to understand and speak English.

    Academics: It's only okay if students are involved in AP classes. Teachers in lower level classes aren't understanding with students, they don't give extra time to students who need it and they have been known to pass students who are failing just so they get the class credit and don't have to retake the class and deal with the student a second time. There aren't a whole lot of different class options for students who want to take specialized classes that fit in with their career path, there are only core classes and a few basic elective classes. I would have enjoyed it more if there were more diverse electives that I could have taken along with my core classes.
