    Extracurriculars: The clubs are very involved with not only the school but also the community around us. They find ways to gather the community and ask for the community's help for fundraising for their clubs.

    Administration & Policies: As a member of a smaller-but-higher-achieving program in the school, I feel there is some racial tension when it comes to the policing of the students at school.
