    Extracurriculars: A few clubs have outstanding very motivating teachers who care. Wish they would do more to get kids excited about the clubs and offer incentives

    Health & Safety: Haven't had any experiences with the nurse. Usually if they are sick they call home. The school does a good job with security. Doors are kept locked to be opened upon a buzzer by office.
