    Teachers: I have never had a problem with my teachers in all 4 years and they all did a great job teaching me the amount I know now. They are a very strong group and understand how to teach the students with a large amounts of respect as long as you respect them and their teachings.

    Extracurriculars: There are very many clubs and activities to join at this school. A lot of students try out for sports and succeed in them if they have strived to work hard enough to obtain that level of success

    Health & Safety: This school is practically the safest place I have ever been. Drugs and alcohol are not at all prevalent on campus, but any school has its users off campus. There's never been any pressure though; everyone is chill about it.

    Food: For school lunch, I'd say there are okay options. The lunch carts have pizza and sunflower butter and jelly sandwiches, and the chocolate milk is really good.

    Sports & Fitness: I never took PE here, so I've never used any of the facilities. What I do know is everyone is really supportive; there's a great dynamic about teamwork here. Our football team also won CIF, and there are some great people on every team.
