    Overall Experience: This school doesn't look great and it may not be great in general but I wouldn't want to go to any other school than this one. One reason being that no other school has a mascot of a unicorn. Another reason being the fact that I met so many amazing people who I know will be my friends for a long time. Some of the teachers I had really did care and I appreciate them in everyday for making these four years tolerable.

    Food: I wouldn't really know much about this part of the school since I don't partake in school lunches. But I know that healthiness is important to the school as well as the students. And not many students complain about school lunches.

    Administration & Policies: One thing that really frustrates me is the schools dress code. I think it's silly to make a student miss class all day because the student was out of dress code. Yes I understand that you have to dress appropriately but if it's something that doesn't really make a difference than why rob that student of their education.

    Sports & Fitness: Our athletics and fitness opportunities are actually really great. The school offers many different sports for all. However our team performance is lacking in most all departments. But on the bright side the school hired new coaches for many sports. Things are already improving.

    Teachers: Some of the teachers seem as though they would rather be doing anything else than teaching high school students. There are rare teachers that absolutely love what they do and genuinely care about the students education and it's those teachers who make the day so much better.
