    Health & Safety: There is a SAD program that involves alot of students in the shool that prepare speeches of real life situations from people that come to visit the school to tell their story. This might include, bullying, drugs, and alcohol abuse, etc. The nursing staff are always available if needed and the faculty are friendly. There are security guards and police who observe the cameras located in the school to ensure the students safety.

    Extracurriculars: There is not much funding that goes into these clubs. Teachers take part only for supervision. There are very nice topis of different clubs that are available but they don't keep up their level of interest. The only club that seems to be successful is the Hip-Hop dance club .

    Overall Experience: There needs to be more diversity in this school and a culture club that should be celebrated annually. There are alot of clubs, but they don't exactly stand out to alot of people. The culbs are ran by children and needs funding to make it more lively and exciting. Overall the students and staff respect eachother and this made my experience at this school welcoming and at ease.

    Teachers: Teachers make themselves available if you need after school help. In the science department there is alot of hand on activities. They make sure that their students are getting the help they need if they don't understand a lesson that is being taught throughout the class.

    Academics: This is a tough school, but there isnt much accademic diverstity. Students transfer here from down south, who took AP classes at their old school. Many drop to honors and College Prep level classes when they get here.
