    Sports & Fitness: The majority of the students are involved in a sport, and every sport team is above average. School spirit is average, but everyone supports the teams whole-heartedly. The athletic facilities are all very modern, and we have facilities available for almost every sport.

    Teachers: All of the teachers I have had are great. They truly understand and love the topic they are teaching. They want to see their students succeed, and will help them to do so. They teachers are always available during breaks, before school, or after school. They communicate well what they expect from a class, and grade fairly.

    Extracurriculars: There are around fifty clubs on campus, many of which do outside activities. Many students are involved in at least one club. Any students or faculty involved in a club is extremely committed to their club. The most popular clubs are community service based, like Interact Club or Key Club, though there is a large variety of clubs and organizations. There is truly a group for everyone at my school. Also, anyone can start a club if they would like to.

    Teachers: The math department definitely needs work and improvement. Most of the teachers are not great and only tend to teach so that they can teach another class or participate in another activity. As for every other department, the teachers for the most part are great, however there are many who aren't easy to talk to and are evident in their dislike towards you.

    Extracurriculars: There are many clubs and extracurricular opportunities, however to me it seems like a lot of the clubs don't do much as they mostly tend to be of personal interest like fencing, french, white rice club (yes it is a thing).
