    Food: In lunch they provide everything for muslim students also. They don't give pork which is good. they provide Halal food to us. They give fruits to us with the lunch sometimes they give us raisins too. They also give chocolate milk and strawberry milk which is usually for middle school student but i like it. they also provide canned fruits.

    Resources & Facilities: In winter they allow heater for us in every class. They give out calculators to every student we can not buy it so they did it for us. In nurse rooms they allow us medicines for emergencies. The technology is the best in every class room we have smart boards. They provide laptop to us for the projects or some kind of research.

    Extracurriculars: I will say the best one is American Red Cross i am also a member in that club from my 10th grade and i really enjoy it because that is the time that we all friends spend together. During school time we have to do our work . The other club is Indo-Pak club in which there is a lot of Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangalis. We all speak same language and we spend time together every friday during advisory. There are a lot of other clubs but i don't have time for it to participate in it. But still i like it.

    Teachers: They are the best teachers in the world for me. From my 9th grade till now all of my teachers were the best and all of them were my favorite teachers beside one. My gym teacher ms. barret she really make me feel hurt. When i was in her class i got periods and i ask her for some rest in nurse office but she didn't gave me permission and , i had to do 20 pushups. After that my back was paining and i was crying in 2 periods even the medicines weren't working. I really feel sad when ever i remember that day.
